  • [Forum] Clicking "What's New" suddenly gives a 404 Error

    I am getting sudden 404 errors every time I search our forum, or click "What's New?".

    Started happening about an hour ago for no apparent reason (haven't installed anything new in weeks).

    Any help appreciated.

    (running 4.1.2)

            I'd check your server logs.
            Maybe your site has been exploited, I'd suggest updating to the latest version of vBulletin.

              Cheers.

              Strangely, I am in the process of updating the software, and all is going well......overwriting some 2600 files...BUT: search.php failed to be overwritten.

                I manually deleted search.php, and uploaded the new one. Now all seems to be fine, and now on 4.1.11, yeah!

                Many thanks Loco.M for the help and guidance!

                    No problem, glad it's working now.
                    I would still wonder why it failed, do you have access to your server logs?
                    If you do, might try searching for "search.php"

                      If I had to guess, you were running an older version of vbulletin with the segfault search issue and an 404 error was masking the php error

                        Same thing just started happening on my forum as well...
                        I haven't installed anything today (or recently). In fact, I'm a novice. My site's url is: http://www.beattips2.com/vb3/index.php
                        Running 4.1.3, and that was installed for me by a vBulletin support rep when purchased the license. Can anyone tell how to fix this? Loco.M said to, "replace your search.php file.." But I have no idea where or how to do that. All help greatly appreciated.

                        Thanks

                          Using the File Manager within cPanel or Plesk, or using an FTP program, upload the search.php file from the ZIP file (you can download this from the Members Area) into the forum root directory (where forum.php is)

                            Hi all,

                            We are using 4.0.6 and are also impacted. I will try to apply the fix suggested above.
