  • Upgrade & Fresh Install giving me 404 - The page cannot be found errors

    I first attempted upgrading from vb4 to vb5 beta. All of the forums on the first page are present. After the first page, every link I clicked on was leading to a 404 - "The page cannot be found" error. I also noticed that the admincp had been moved to the core directory.

    I then wiped these files and started again. Instead of connecting to the old existing database, I created a new one and tried to do a fresh install from scratch... Same problem... The first page loads fine. After the first page, I get nothing but 404 errors. Anything I click on including the login gets 404 - The page cannot be found errors.

    I'm pretty lost. I've seen similar issues on this board, but I didn't want to hijack some one else's post with my own questions.

    My URL:

    I have attached my config.php from the vb5 directory and copied my httaccess file into text file so that I could attach it.

    Did you upload the web.config fi;e?

      Below is the web.configure file contents:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <!-- This file is to support redirection in IIS.
      This file is harmless if you are running under Apache -->
      <rule name="Installer" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^install/" ignoreCase="true" />
      <action type="Rewrite" url="core/install/" />
      <rule name="Main Redirect" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
      <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
      <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" ignoreCase="false" negate="true" />
      <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" ignoreCase="false" negate="true" />
      <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php/{R:1}" />
      <rule name="Admincp" stopProcessing="true">

        The web.config was uploaded to the directory.

              vBulletin 5 requires url rewrite support, which requires a third party addon in IIS6, you need to be on IIS7, 7.5 or 8 to get url rewrite support out of the box. If you need to stay on iis6, you'd need a third party system plugin for IIS itself.
