  • Can't get to forums....

    I have set up vBulletin succesfully, sort of.

    I can get there from the control panel where it says "Go to your Forums Home Page"

    However, I cannot get there when I type in www.mydomain.com/forums/

    This used to work, I've changed over to a different provider and now it doesn't..

    Any thoughts? I'm sure someone else has seen this..

    Thanks for the help,

    Josh

        Try adding index.php to the end of the URL or using .htaccess to make index.php a valid directory index.

          Excuse my not knowing, but how would I implement .htaccess to do this?

          Thanks,

            I figured it out, I believe :

            I put this line at the beginning of an .htaccess file

            DirectoryIndex index.php


            Is the normal practice? I never set this up on my last host and it worked right off the bat.
