  • Issue with vBulletin 5.1.0 fresh install...

    Hi,

    I'm installing vBulletin 5.1.0 and when I went to access the adminCP I was shown an error message saying "That action could not be completed" so I edited the presentation config file and changed
    PHP Code:
    $config['core_path'] = realpath(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/core'
    to my absolute path however I am now receiving a blank page everywhere I go on the site. Not to mention if I don't enter /index.php I am returned a default server page which I find odd.

    Is there something I am doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance...

    You shouldn't be editing that file at all except to rename it. The error you're getting is because the .htaccess file is not available or isn't working. If you installed in a sub-directory and there is an .htaccess file in the parent, you need to set the RewriteBase within the .htaccess file. Instructions on doing this are within the file itself.

    If your server is IIS, then you need to make sure the web.config file is working. This requires the installation of the URL Rewrite module from Microsoft's site.

    If you're using NGINX, then you need to implement the vhost file in the do_not_upload folder into your server configuration.

    For the index.php returning a default server page, you need to talk to your server administrator and tell them that index.php is a default file.

      Edit the file back to what it should be.

      Have you uploaded the .htaccess file from the root of the upload folder?

        Yes I uploaded the file and I don't have a .htaccess file in the parent directory. I changed it back and I don't get the blank page but I still cannot access the AdminCP.

          Go to /core/admincp/. Can you log in there? If so, make sure the URLs for front-end, login and core are correct under Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details.

            I can login via /core/admincp with no problems, and the site URLs are correct as far as I can see.

                The user has open_basedir restrictions on his server and so he is running into this bug - http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-6415 The fix was to edit the /core/admincp/global.php file per the jira report.

                  Thank you, I applied the fix in core/modcp/global.php too.
