MFGG powered by LumaSMS

LumaSMS is a new software being built for compatibility with Taloncrossing Site Managament System. It's being built specifically for Mario Fan Games Galaxy.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See deployment for notes on how to deploy the project on a live system.


What things you need to install the software and how to install them

An Apache 2.2 or higher server
PHP 5.4.16 or higher (TCSMS does not work with PHP7 but it will not be necessary later on)
MySQL 5.5 or higher

To get going quick on Windows, just install XAMPP.


Copy the files into your web directory. If you're using XAMMP, you can copy the files into your /../xampp/htdocs/ directory.

Using the installer (Recommended)

Once the files are copied over head to ./hyliandev/install/ in your web browser. Follow the instructions and you should have a copy of LumaSMS up and running in no time!

Manual Install

If the installer isn't working for you for whatever reason, follow these instructions.

Copy ./hyliandev/install/settings.default.php to ./hyliandev/settings.php.

By default, the settings.php file runs with a database named mfgg and connects to a server on localhost with the username root and no password. Copy this setup or modify the settings starting with db_ in the settings.php file.

Now, run all of the SQL files in ./hyliandev/install/, in this order:

  • mfgg.sql (this one contains a basic TCSMS database structure)
  • mfgg_update.sql (this one updates the TCSMS database tables with some necessary additions)
  • Then everything in the ./hyliandev/install/sql/ directory (these create tables that are unique to LumaSMS)

Lastly, create a directory named tcsms in your parent directory. Inside that, create two directories: file and thumbnail. Finally, put numbered folders 1 through 6 in each. This folder is where content is being stored, as of right now. This will change.

TCSMS source code isn't available here because it isn't open-source.

How does it work?


template.php contains everything before and after the page content


Files under ./hyliandev/pages/ can be loaded by adding their path to your URL.

For example: to load ./hyliandev/pages/test.php, you would add /test to your URL.


model.php contains a class called Model. It contains methods for creating, reading, updating, and deleting different database items. You should extend the Model class if you want to access a new database item.

There isn't a great deal of abstraction in the Model classes yet. Maybe this should be fixed.


Themes aren't a thing yet. All theme elements are currently in ./hyliandev/theme/base/.


A "view" is a template file you can include anywhere in the page. They can be included using the view($file,$vars) function.

The $file parameter is the path to the view you're trying to include from ./hyliandev/views/, without the .php extension.

The $vars parameter is an associative array of variables you want to be local in scope to the view file.


The user.php file contains a static class called User. You can get the currently logged in user as an object by calling User::GetCurrentUser().

Built With

  • Raw PHP; no pre-existing framework
  • password.php is a library I'm using for proper password hashing before PHP 5.5
