  • Just Another V5 Install Help Request

    Downloaded and installed V5 Beta 18 - uploaded the files according to the instruction on my 1and1 server and edited the htaccess file to run php6 (1and1's php5.0+) with mod rewrite on.

    I'm having the same issues as others here have posted with the "admin" link on the site not taking me to the right directory.

    The forum is here: http://www.allcrawl.com/forum

    For the admin login, http://www.allcrawl.com/forum/admincp doesn't work, however, http://www.allcrawl.com/forum/core/admincp does, although another thread here states this is a problem. (?)

    I've tried adding and removing "/core" to the URL in the admin URL settings but that didn't work. Both config files are correct and I can post them if needed.

    The only thing I can think of that could be causing problems is that the "Phorum" which is being replaced with Vbulletin is still running on the main directory of the site - http://www.allcrawl.com

    Thanks in advance!

    How does your presentation config.php look like? Are mod_security or suhosin blocking any function?
    No private support, only PM me when I ask for it. Support in the forums only.

        Doesn't appear that mod_rewrite is working on your server. Did you upload the .htaccess file in the upload directory of your download package?

          Yes, here is what the .htaccess file reads:

          PHP Code:
          AddHandler x-mapp-php6 .php  

          <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
          RewriteEngine On
          RewriteCond 
          %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
          RewriteCond 
          %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
          RewriteRule 
          ^(.*)$ index.php?routestring=$[L,QSA]

          #needed because admincp is an actual directory.
          RewriteRule ^(admincp/)$ index.php?routestring=$[L,QSA]
          </
          IfModule

            You will have to ask the hosting provider if mod_rewrite is enabled on your account. None of the links work properly because it isn't enabled.

              I've contacted 1and1 and made the required changes to enable PHP 5.4 as well as the mod_rewrite function.

              I'm told everything on the back end should be in order now, however, I'm still having the same issues.

              Any suggestions?

                Do you have another forum software package installed on the same site? When I click on "Blogs" it appears to take me to another forum.

                Nothing else should be installed in the vBulletin directory. I suggest uploading only the vBulletin files to your forums directory and upgrading to beta 19.

                  The existing forum is being replaced with vbulletin and I was hoping to get vbulletin running in its own sub directory first so I could transfer over most of the data and then remove the previous forum.

                  Sounds like that won't work very well so let me try a few other things and see what happens.

                  - - - Updated - - -

                  So I moved the old forum, wiped out the directory, and installed VB5.19

                  The home directory only consists of an html file directing people to a mirror of the previous site and a error404 page. The vb5 forum is at http://www.allcrawl.com/vb5

                  I had to add "DirectoryIndex index.php" to the .htaccess file for the directory to automatically direct to index.php but now that works.

                  Unfortunately, the links still don't work and the admincp gets an error 404.

                  Thoughts? Is this still a mod-rewrite issue?

                    In your .htaccess add the following line after RewriteEngine On:

                    RewriteBase /vb5/

                    Does that help?

                      Yes! That appears to have solved many of the issues, however, the "login or signup" link at the top right isn't working and I can't seem to login to admincp.

                        I think I'll just install v4 until v5 is officially released. Thanks for your help!

                          Ok...not a bad idea actually, as vB5 is still in beta and not really ready for production sites.

                          When the Gold version comes out, if you are having trouble with the upgrade, post back for help.
