    It seems we cannot install VB5 on Godaddy.com - is it correct?

    All of your symptoms indicate that mod_rewrite is not working on your account.

    If you access the AdminCP via /core/admincp, not everything will work but it won't use mod_rewrite for what does.

    It shows that they(Godaddy) are running the required software versions as required by vBulletin.

    A quick recap of the symptoms:
    -Main page loads correctly
    -No links work from main page(login, blogs, group, contact, admincp)
    -All return Internal Server Error
    -admincp IS accessible from /core/admincp/ link (I believe this is a trunkated version of the control panel?)
    -I can login from there and make SOME changes (does this indicate that mod_rewrite is PARTIALLY working?)

    Most do.

    GoDaddy seems to be the only hosting provider having a problem with the .htaccess file.

    The entire point of mod_rewrite is to build permalinks by being able to rewrite one URL to another.

    I don't know what they mean by slinks... Unless they mean Symbolic Links which we aren't using.

    Here is what our .htaccess files does...

    1) it looks at the URL and checks to see if it is not a valid file.
    2) it looks at the URL and checks to see if it is not a valid directory.

    If both of those checks pass, it turns the string after the domain name into a "routing" string and passes that to index.php.

    So for example if you go to www.example.com/blogs/ the Rewrite rules changes it to www.example.com/index.php?routestring=blogs

    Then because /admincp/ is a valid directory, it will automatically forward anything to the admincp.

    After it rewrites a URL then is should immediately stop. We use the QSA flag so if there is anything in the query already, we pass that along as well.

    You would have to contact GoDaddy for a test on their servers to make sure everything is working correctly. If mod_rewrite were working properly though you vBulletin 5 Connect installation would work.

    Is there any way for me to test if mod rewrite is actually turned on. Godaddy stated that it was on and the problem is with per slinks in the htaccess file. .???

    Is there any way I can test to prove mod rewrite is on or off?

    vB3 doesn't use mod_rewrite.

    The issues listed here are a result of the rewrite rules not working properly. URL Rewriting is required for vBulletin 5 and the server must support it via .htaccess or web.config. This pretty much limits the server configurations to Apache, Litespeed and IIS at this time. If your core_path variable is correct and you have the .htaccess file uploaded properly, then you need to contact your host to see what the actual error behind the 500 server error is. It can be a multitude of things. So much so that 500 Internal Server error is pretty worthless for diagnostic purposes.

    Are you certain that mod_rewrite is working on your server?

    I'm having the exact same problem as this guy. I installed vb5 fresh. I even tried the config builder to see if that'd make a difference and it didn't.

    I also tried setting 'everything' to 755, and that didnt work. What are the folders/files suppose to be set at 755 and 644?


    Any other ideas?

    Make sure your core_path actually has /core at the end of it.

    I have now copied in the original one form the zip file upload folder to the root of my web server. Same results. Does the fact that my front page loads without errors indicate that my config.php files are correctly populated, or could my problems still lie there? Any link I click gives the above mentioned internal server error, and the

    Further details: I get the 500 Internal Server Error for every link form the main page and also from /admincp/ I can, however get to the cut down cp by going to /core/admincp

    Does this help you further troubleshoot?

    Thanks!
