Nubuilder use case question

Postby dana » Wed Aug 19, 2020 8:18 am

Hello,

I have a Wordpress website hosted on Bluehost.

I have the WPForms plugin installed. I use it to create data entry forms.

Would Nubuilder allow me to access the WPforms data and allow me to edit, update, display the data in my website?

Thank you,

Dana

Hi Dana,

As long as nuBuilder is installed in the same database as WordPress, you can access all tables.

Hello,

A bit confused by the phrase "As long as nuBuilder is installed in the same database as WordPress".

Is Nubuilder software or data?

If Nubuilder is software wouldn't it be installed in its own directory?

Thank you,

Dana

nuBuilder consists of application files (php, js etc) and requires a database.

You have 2 options: Either you install nuBuilder as a WordPress plugin (not recommended, as not maintained anymore) or as a standalone version.

Standalone version: Download the nuBuilder files an place them in a separate folder (can also be in a subfolder of WordPress).

Follow the link "Installation Guides " in my signature to read the rest of the installation process.

Just bear in mind not to create a new database for nuBuilder but use your existing WordPress DB. Otherwise nuBuilder can't access your WP tables.

Hello,

I didn't see your last reply until after doing the installation.

Do I need to uninstall & start over?

I tried editing the nuconfig.php file with the following settings:

$nuConfigDBHost = "127.0.0.1";
$nuConfigDBName = "rasmuss5_WPGWZ"; //---------This is the name of the Wordpress database
$nuConfigDBUser = "rasmuss5_nubuilder4"; //------------I associated this user name as a privileged user
$nuConfigDBPassword = "xxxxxxx";
$nuConfigDBGlobeadminUsername = "globeadmin"; //-- globeadmin username
$nuConfigDBGlobeadminPassword = "xxxxxxxx"; //-- globeadmin password
$nuConfigTitle = "nuBuilder 4";
$nuConfigIsDemo = false;
$nuConfigTimeOut = 1440;

Still not seeing the rasmuss5_WPGWZ Wordpress database.

Thank you for your patience.

I'm not sure how you set that up.. Are both the WP + nuBuilder tables in the same table?
What do you mean by "Still not seeing the rasmuss5_WPGWZ Wordpress database." ? How did you test it?

Hello,

The nubuilder and Wordpress databases are two distinct databases.

I tested it by going to the "Forms" step in the installation. I.E. Login as globeadmin, on the "Home" page, "Setup" button, then "Forms" button.

The only tables I see are from the nubuilder databases. I.E. zzzzz..... name formats for the tables.

Does the "globeadmin" user id need to be registered with the Wordpress database via Bluehost-Advanced-Database interface?

I currently have rasmuss5_nubuilder4 user id registered with the Wordpress database, "rasmuss5_WPGWZ".
The userid registration process always puts "rasmuss5_" as the prefix to any userid.

Thank you,

Dana

This won't work.
