  • Installing 5.0.5 is a pain

    Using vbulletin since 2007 - now on Version 3.8

    Try to install vbulletin 5.0.5 on an Linux Server Apache 2.0, PHP 5.3.15, MySQL 5.5.33

    It is a VirtualHost on a subdomain for testing.

    Apache conf. says

    AllowOverride FileInfo

    With that i am not able to run install nor upgrade - get 403 Access forbidden or 500 Server Error (AllowOverride All)

    with AllowOverride None i am able to run install or also upgrade. No problems to install or upgrading.

    But vbulletin is not running, getting 404 for bunch of files and dirs

    .htaccess is not working

    So, what ist the correct setting for apache conf? And is that the correct .htacess ??

    You need to set it to "AllowOverride All" for the .htaccess to have affect.

    As it is in a subdomain and not the root directory, you might have to set the RewriteBase value in the .htaccess as well. This is currently commented out in the file.

      You can also opt to move the rewrite rules directly into the virtualhost config, instead of having to use the htaccess file. What does your apache/php error log say about the internal server errors?

        AllowOverride All

        Also FollowSymLinks must aktivated...
