  • Host Change. Can't get site back up

    Hi,

    I've moved hosts. My database is up on the new host, and I moved my files over and changed the pertinent lines in the config.php file. I was getting a redirect loop (http://www.tribegaming.com/core/inst...tall/index.php)

    So, I re-downloaded VB, re-uploaded it to the server, and performed an upgrade installation ( i was 0.1 version behind anyway).

    I'm still getting the redirect loop.

    I have deleted the core/install folder.

    Please help.

    Thanks,
    Timothy

    Did you upload the default .htaccess for vBulletin 5?

    You've updated the config.php file to point to the database you moved from your old server?

      Hi,

      Yea, I uploaded the entire upload folder contents right to my web root, which appears to include the htaccess file. I also updated the config.php file to point to the database. There was one other line I had to modify... i think it was the file path to the forum home:

      // ******** FULL PATH TO FORUMS DIRECTORY ******
      // On a few systems it may be necessary to input the full path to your forums directory
      // for vBulletin to function normally. You can ignore this setting unless vBulletin
      // tells you to fill this in. Do not include a trailing slash!
      // Example Unix:
      // $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/home/users/public_html/forums';
      // Example Win32:
      // $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = 'c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\vb3';
      $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/home1/griphus/public_html/core';

        Why did you change that line? Did the system tell you to? I'd uncomment it.

          the line was uncommented - I did not comment/uncomment anything. I only changed the file path from my old path to my new one. do you recommend I comment it out?

              There isn't enough information to solve the problem in a thread. You'll have to open a support ticket so someone can look at the server itself.

                Okay anytime you have a redirecting webpage the answer it .htaccess

                Go ahead with ticket support.

                But the problem is in your .htaccess file I can almost promise you. Make sure it's up to date with the software .htaccess in your vbulletin directory. Each vbulletin release comes with an .htaccess file. You need to make sure the one you have in your vbulletin directory is the same as the one provided in the members area.

                You can have more then one .htaccess (for instance one in your vbulletin directory and one in your public_html)

                You possibly got the 2 mixed up. I would double-check.
