    Hi Dzi13, forwarding this to Tech Support. Sorry you are having problems with your upgrade to vB5. Thank you.

      You need to replace your old .htaccess file with the one provided with vBulletin 5 in the Upload directory. Previous rewrites and addons like vBSEO are not supported in vBulletin 5.

        Hi, yes I have new .htaccess file. Here it is:
        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On

        # Send css calls directly to the correct file VBV-7807
        RewriteRule ^css.php$ core/css.php [NC,L]

        # Redirect old install path to core.
        RewriteRule ^install/ core/install/ [NC,L]

        # Main Redirect
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.(gif|jpg|jpeg|png|css)$
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?routestring=$1 [L,QSA]

        # Because admincp is an actual directory.
        RewriteRule ^(admincp/)$ index.php?routestring=$1 [L,QSA]

          Also, I noticed that home page works when i change folder and url from /forum to /forum2 (rename folder and change $config['baseurl'])

            I have found the problem. I had redirection in root of site (not in forum - fix I got from vb support in past for vb4)

            RedirectMatch 301 /forum/$

            Thank you
