  • htaccess file for vb 5.2.3

    Anyone know the default code for the htaccess file. When I upgraded, the htaccess file was not in there. I moved one from an old version that i upgraded from 4.2.3, because it was also missing from the 5.2.2 upgrade.. The code reads as follows. I believe the htaccess file is supposed to help with performance, so it is important because my site is slow right now, and I think it relates to my htaccess file.

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    # In some cases where you have other mod_rewrite rules, you may need to remove the
    # comment on the following RewriteBase line and change it to match your folder name.
    # This resets the other mod_rewrite rules for just this directory
    # If your site was www.example.com/forum, the setting would be /forum/
    #RewriteBase /

    # 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]

    I believe I have to add the following because my non www. addresses need to be redirected back to my www. addresses, this was a problem back in 5.2.2 also, that is when I got the code below..
    RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^agentlinkus.com[nc] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.agentlinkus.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

    Is there anything I need to add to my htaccess file for vb 5.2.3? Also, the code I was told to add, does not seem to be the same format as the default code that was in my last upgrade to 5.2.2.

    Please let me know if I have revealed anything on this post that can put my site as risk.

    I appreciate your feedback. =)

    The htaccess file is in the download package, but it is called htaccess.txt. You would rename this to .htaccess. It may not be visible on the server though - some servers do not show htaccess files once they are there.

      Your site's front page loads in less than three seconds for me. What is the cause for concern specifically?
