I tried installing Protector. I copied all the files into the appropriate subdirectories and I made the changes to mainfile.php. I got this error:

DB connection failed, or wrong XOOPS_DB_PREFIX in mainfile.php, or broken config table, or broken Protector installation.

My mainfile is as follows:
if ( !defined("XOOPS_MAINFILE_INCLUDED") ) {
	define("XOOPS_MAINFILE_INCLUDED",1);

	// XOOPS Physical Path
	// Physical path to your main XOOPS directory WITHOUT trailing slash
	// Example: define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', '/home/franksre/public_html');
	define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', '(path)/public_html');

	// XOOPS Virtual Path (URL)
	// Virtual path to your main XOOPS directory WITHOUT trailing slash
	// Example: define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://franksrecipes.com');
	define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://franksrecipes.com');
	
	define('XOOPS_TRUST_PATH','(path)/public_html/xoops_trust_path'); 

	define('XOOPS_CHECK_PATH', 1);
	// Protect against external scripts execution if safe mode is not enabled
	if ( XOOPS_CHECK_PATH && !@ini_get('safe_mode') ) {
		if ( function_exists('debug_backtrace') ) {
			$xoopsScriptPath = debug_backtrace();
			if ( !count($xoopsScriptPath) ) {
			 	die("XOOPS path check: this file cannot be requested directly");
			}
			$xoopsScriptPath = $xoopsScriptPath[0]['file'];
		} else {
			$xoopsScriptPath = isset($_SERVER['PATH_TRANSLATED']) ? $_SERVER['PATH_TRANSLATED'] :  $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'];
		}
		if ( DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR != '/' ) {
			// IIS6 may double the \ chars
			$xoopsScriptPath = str_replace( strpos( $xoopsScriptPath, '\\\\', 2 ) ? '\\\\' : DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, '/', $xoopsScriptPath);
		}
		if ( strcasecmp( substr($xoopsScriptPath, 0, strlen(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH)), str_replace( DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, '/', XOOPS_ROOT_PATH)) ) {
		 	exit("XOOPS path check: Script is not inside XOOPS_ROOT_PATH and cannot run.");
		}
	}

	// Database
	// Choose the database to be used
	define('XOOPS_DB_TYPE', 'mysql');

	// Table Prefix
	// This prefix will be added to all new tables created to avoid name conflict in the database. If you are unsure, just use the default 'xoops'.
	define('XOOPS_DB_PREFIX', '(prefix)');

	// Use persistent connection? (Yes=1 No=0)

	define('XOOPS_DB_PCONNECT', 0);

	define('XOOPS_GROUP_ADMIN', '1');
	define('XOOPS_GROUP_USERS', '2');
	define('XOOPS_GROUP_ANONYMOUS', '3');

    foreach ( array('GLOBALS', '_SESSION', 'HTTP_SESSION_VARS', '_GET', 'HTTP_GET_VARS', '_POST', 'HTTP_POST_VARS', '_COOKIE', 'HTTP_COOKIE_VARS', '_REQUEST', '_SERVER', 'HTTP_SERVER_VARS', '_ENV', 'HTTP_ENV_VARS', '_FILES', 'HTTP_POST_FILES', 'xoopsDB', 'xoopsUser', 'xoopsUserId', 'xoopsUserGroups', 'xoopsUserIsAdmin', 'xoopsConfig', 'xoopsOption', 'xoopsModule', 'xoopsModuleConfig', 'xoopsRequestUri') as $bad_global ) {
        if ( isset( $_REQUEST[$bad_global] ) ) {
            header( 'Location: '.XOOPS_URL.'/' );
            exit();
        }
    }

	include XOOPS_TRUST_PATH.'/modules/protector/include/precheck.inc.php' ;
	if (!isset($xoopsOption['nocommon']) && XOOPS_ROOT_PATH != '') {
		include XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/include/common.php";
	}
	include XOOPS_TRUST_PATH.'/modules/protector/include/postcheck.inc.php' ;
}
?>

Any idea what is wrong and how I can fix this?

Thanks
Frank

I've just rewrite your post, right away.

Don't write your important information like DB Password into public sites.

The mainfile.php looks all ok.

have you update the module?
Or reinstall after uninstall.

Or try to change the mainfile like:
define('XOOPS_DB_PCONNECT', 0);
define('XOOPS_DB_PCONNECT', 1);

No, I have not been able to do anything. As soon as I copied the new mainfile.php to the site I got the db connection error. I can not access the site at all with that file. I had a backup so my site is running, but protector is not working

I've just installed latest Protector with exactly the same results.

Running Xoops 2.0.16 - fresh install

I tried
define('XOOPS_DB_PCONNECT', 1);
and
define('XOOPS_DB_PCONNECT', 0);

It makes no difference. My mainfile is:

include XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/include/common.php";

}
include XOOPS_TRUST_PATH.'/modules/protector/include/postcheck.inc.php' ;

}

The trust path is inside web root because hoster does not allow (yet) directories outside of web root.

The problem is in the precheck file becuase if I comment out the postcheck line, the same error occurs. If I comment out precheck and postcheck, my site runs normally.

Will it run without the comments in the mainfile? I haven't installed the module because of the mainfile errors.

Have you patched mainfile.php before installing Protector?
If so, this is just a mistake of procedures.

Yes, that did it. Need to install first and then patch. Weird, I'm sure I've patched first and then installed on previous versions. Problem solved

You need to do a normal install of the module, THEN do the mainfile patch? Is this correct?

I can't see what's the problem.

Which core version?
Which protector version?

If you install Protector 3.1.x, set XOOPS_TRUST_PATH.

	// XOOPS Trust Path
	// Physical path to your XOOPS trusted directory WITHOUT trailing slash
	// Example: define('XOOPS_TRUST_PATH', '/path/to/xoops/trusted_directory');
	//define('XOOPS_TRUST_PATH', '/var/www/vhosts/foititakos.gr/httpdocs/xoops/xoops_trust_path');
	define('XOOPS_TRUST_PATH', '/var/www/vhosts/foititakos.gr/xoops_trust_path');

I recommend this path '/var/www/vhosts/foititakos.gr/xoops_trust_path' for XOOPS_TRUST_PATH.
(Reupload it)

Perhaps, your core is 2.0.16 from xoops.org
And you'd better install Protector 3.1x than 3.04.

Then, what's wrong with you?

I say again "just set XOOPS_TRUST_PATH".
