  • Installation Problem

    Hi

    I am attempting to do a new install on my Synology NAS as a test before upgrading the main forum, the NAS forum will then be used as a backup if the main forum/server goes down.
    And yes,, I have two licences :-)

    I made sure php 7 is installed, uploaded the files, edited the core/includes/config.php and then proceeded to run the install script.
    Everything appeared to go correctly.
    At the end I was offered the choice to go to the admincp.

    I clicked on that option and was asked to enter my user name and password.
    I deleted the install folder and then attempted to login to the admincp
    As soon as I logged in I just get a file not found message at the top left of the screen.

    If I try to access the forum I get a scrambled screen as attached.

    I can still access a correctly displaying admincp login screen but get the file not found message as soon as I log in.

    Any idea what I have missed please?
    Regards
    Trevor

    And it doesn't matter if I enter the log in details or not, as soon as I hit Log In I get the file not found message.

      And I just noticed I can log in from the messed up forum page.

        The admincp folder is empty apart from a folder called img with some images inside.

        Edited.
        The core/admincp folder is full so this is a redirect issue then????

          Have you renamed htaccess.txt to .htaccess?

            Hi
            Yes. I did that at the same time as renaming the two files. I did not enter any info in the root config file as the instructions say there is no need to.

              The redirects are not working. You'll need to check that rewriting URLs is enabled in the server OS.

                After much pulling of hair I realised that the Synology NAS back-end server was set to Apache HTTP server 2.4
                Changing this setting to 2.2 solved all of my problems.

                Did I over look the fact the vb5 is not compatible with 2.4 or are there setting to change to enable it to work on 2.4

                Do I need to worry about what version I am using?
