  • Can not Login or enter Blogs/Groups after installing - Config Problems?

    Hi,
    I'm trying to install vb5 on a localhost with wamp.
    I got it installed but for some reason I can not enter the login module, blogs or groups.
    On the blogs and groups page I get the "404 Not Found" error.

    I guess I got something setup wrong in my config file...

    Here is what my config.php in root is set like:

    // ****** Base URLs ******
    $config['baseurl'] = 'localhost/vb5';


    // This setting is for where your vbulletin core folder is
    $config['core_path'] = realpath(dirname(__FILE__)) . '\core';

    // This is the url and web based path to your core directory
    $config['baseurl_core'] = $config['baseurl'] . '/core';

    Please try 'http://localhost/vb5' for $config['baseurl'] and realpath(dirname(__FILE__)) .'/core' for $config['core_path']. Did you upload the mod_rewrite file (.htaccess for apache2, web.config for IIS)?

      Thank you for replying Hartmut.
      I made the changes in the config file, but I still have the same problem.

      I have uploaded both the mod_rewrite file and the htaccess file. (I have not made any edits to them..)

      When I set the $config['core_path'] = realpath(dirname(__FILE__)) . to be: 'C:\wamp\www\vb5\core';
      I get following error - see image.
      not sure if that can help.Click image for larger version

        Naa, don't do that and keep it like I wrote in post #2. So when you did the changes in your frontend config.php, you still had the problem that you couldn't login? Can you login into AdminCP at http://localhost/vb5/admincp?

          Ok. Yes still the same problem. When I enter that url I only get an index showing:

          Parent Directory -
          img/ 16-Oct-2012 17:11 -
          js/ 16-Oct-2012 17:11 -

          Do you think a re installation will help?

            I believe that there are files missing.

                mod_rewrite is not enabled in WampServer by default. Please make sure this is enabled on the WampServer System Tray Utility... Apache -> Apache Modules. Check Mod_Rewrite. Then restart Apache.

                  Thank you Wayne! That solved the problem.
                  I would never figure that out myself, thanks a bunch for the help!
