  • 404 After fresh install

    Hello All,

    After fresh install vBulletin Connect Version: 5.5.3. Home page Error. 404 and admincp blank page.

    I already have Wordpress CMS installed in my root directory i installed fresh root ( ) .htaccess Change it to: RewriteBase /f/ and PHP Code: $config['Database']['tableprefix'] = 'vb_';
    and $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/home/xxx/public_html/f/';

    I also contacted my hosting to check this 5 points they say its everything fine ;
    • htaccess.txt has not been renamed to .htaccess (the leading period is important)
    • mod_rewrite is not installed for Apache 2.4
    • URL Rewrite is not installed for IIS 8.5+
    • The server configuration for NGINX has not been updated. See the file for your version of PHP within the do_not_upload folder.
    • AllowOverride is not allowed in the Apache configuration file.

    PHP Version 7.2.19

    Please clarify:

    htaccess.txt has not been renamed to .htaccess (the leading period is important)

    You DO need to rename this file.

      Your host says everything that is opposite of what is required to run vBulletin 5.
      • You DO need to have the htaccess.txt renamed to .htaccess.
        • Since you're using vBulletin in a sub-directory under WordPress, you will need to update the RewriteBase directive in the .htaccess file. The Rewrites in Wordpress will prevent vBulletin from working otherwise.
      • You DO need to have Apache's mod_rewrite or IIS' URL Rewrite installed. If using NGINX, you will need to update the server files.
      • Apache DOES needs AllowOverrides set to All for your virtual host.
      If you cannot make these changes, you cannot run vBulletin on that server. We offer a Hosted Solution called vBulletin Cloud that has properly configured servers for vBulletin.

      Comment out this line: $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/home/xxx/public_html/f/';. You can do this by adding // at the beginning of the line. Chances are it is not needed on your server (or any server these days).
