  1. Bonjour,
    juste dire félicitation à chacun d’entre vous pour ce travail et bonne continuation.




  2. Hi

    I tested the latest version playsms but I find myself
    with a blank page with no image and the party menu is invisible.
    I can not change the configuration

    can you help me?
    thank you



    1. Hi,

      It is a common error, you should:
      1. edit config.php and comment the error_reporting(0) and replace it with the next line
      2. install php-pear and pear-db (how to install it is up to your Linux distribution)



  3. thank you for the answer
    but it does not work
    I do not see the side menu on the left (as the demo) and
    links to other tabs do not work.
    in the http log I have this error:
    [Error] [client:: 1] File does not exist: / var / www / html / playsms / <, referer: http://localhost/playsms/

    I installed php-pear and php-pear-DB

    What should I replace in config.php?
    i commented the error_reporting(0)
