    This may have been fixed by over writing the htaccess, but I still have hack in the http.conf file, and every thing is fixed after replacing all vb files.

    You can use it now. It would prevent issues like the one you have above from happening on a properly configured server.

    Hello Wayne Luke, thank you for the reply.
    By the wording of your post, I wonder; is it too late to use the default .htaccess now? Must this be in place at a certain time during the upgrade process?
    Thanks,
    -Alex

    Should have used the default .htaccess included with the software. It takes care of this situation.

    I agree that there is something going on with the rewrite.

    I can only access /core/admincp so every thing is based on that. I have set the urls in the options > menu, and tried the https:// versions as well (those 404).

    These are the URLs I entered into the production vbulletin system while creating the database back up.

    Is the problem that I didn't start with a fully functioning version?

    My method was to copy the files and db to make it seem like a clone. And running the upgrade.php did result in a working vbulletin forum... kind of...

    -- Update --

    I was able to get it to work using a hack (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6...ther-directory) in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

    This works around the issue so I can test, but I would like to get the issue resolved, in a correct manner.

    I'm sorry you can't see the site. I did link to it in my post above. Is the link not working for you? What error are you getting?

    Without seeing the site, it sounds very much like the rewrite rules are not working.

    Also, have you got the correct URLS in the admincp settings? If you are using a test mirror it will be a different URL, this needs to be reflected in the settings.

    Root vs Core issue after 5.1.1 to 5.1.8 upgrade

    Hello

    I'm trying to create a test server going using an upgraded version of the existing (copied to new server) vbulletin forum. So far I have had limited success. First of all the needful as stickyposted by moderators...

    server: EC2 m3.xlarge
    os: linux / Apache/2.4.12 (Amazon)
    PHP: 5.4.42
    MySQL: 5.5.42

    Document Root /var/www/html
    Loaded Modules: mod_rewrite
    production forum: forum.nexonm.com
    test forum: http://ec2-54-188-170-46.us-west-2.c...amazonaws.com/

    I have read and followed the instructions here: https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/...ore_config_php

    Situation:
    Have a production forum running 5.1.1 with unresolvable errors / issues which should be fixed by updating.
    Have an exact duplicate server on amazon ec2 on which I wish to create a test server. (all services installed running).
    Copied all files from production forums (e.g. cp * /html) and zipped them. (/var/www/html/ is the forum root. no subfolder)
    Moved those files along with a back up of the database (using the correct urls before taking the dump) to the new server.
    Populated /html with files from production forums, created mysql database < back up.
    Uploaded upgrade upload folder, removed config.files. Copied over core/ js/ includes/ forumrunner/ with uploaded
    Updated images/ css/ and fonts/ by adding new files and keeping existing assets (such as fonts and images).
    Ran the upgrade.php file from the browser at /core/install/upgrade.php
    - Encountered a duplicate widget id in the database. - Deleted the duplicate row. - Upgrade 'aborted'.
    Ran the upgrade.php file from the browser a second time.
    Completed successfully.

    I reach the last step, and when I click "go to admincp" /admincp is a directory.

    When I check for errors with the developer tools, I see that css.php is not being located at root. This is because it exists in core.

    I have tried:
    Updated config files to include base path and admincp paths, no change.

    Double checked the forum URLs and rerun the upgrade script, no change.
    (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...mincp-url-path)

    Double checked .htaccess for mod_rewite on, and rewritebase is / (which is where my forum is) , no change.
    (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...ation-of-5-0-1)

    Double checked for global.php - found it in /core /modcp and /admincp directories, not root. cp'd to root, no change.

    I feel like the answer is 'get vb to find the forums in the root directory'. I just can't figure out how to do that.

    Any help is welcome. Am willing to try anything. You may also email me directly at [email protected] 24/7

    Best regards,
    -Alex
