    • Works ok but!!

      I can get it to work, but not on a subdomain. Is there away to make it work with subdomains?

      Comment


      • sorry, but I do not get it to work. is there a hhtpd.conf setting I am missing?

        I have the .htacces-file in place in /archiv, but i still get the 404-message that is defined in the .htaccess in htdoc-root - doesn't the .htaccess in /archive-directory overwrite the root one?

        • jamez: sorry no clue on subdomains, you need more of a linux expert than me.

          robert! didn't know you were still having trouble.. I believe the setting you are looking for will be in access.conf (possibly httpd.conf)... it is called "Allow Override" for .htaccess on a directory level. It is fairly well documented inside of the file. You need to Allow Override All or at least the part about redirects.

          hope this helps... I'm sure someone with more apache knowledge can offer better advice.

          • Yeah, I found that on apache.org and in httpd.conf and I enabled it. Now my customized error document defined via a .htaccess file in / works fine, but not in /archiv.

            anyone here that can help me?!

                • Hi Jesse,

                  You need to upgrade from PHP3 to PHP4. The script will work and everything will be faster and more pleasant.

                    • The google update has already happened for last month and the databases appear stabilized across www-www2-www3. Check next month around this time and I'm sure we'll have more VBSFs in there.

                        • IMPORTANT NOTE

                          IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR SPIDERFRIENDLY FORUMS:

                          This little piece of Google info came from a great interview about Google's Page Rank and Term Vectors.

                          ...while Google might spider your site, it won't be added to the database until someone else links to it.

                          I was guilty of this myself with the vbSpiderFriend here. I didn't want this link to be visible to my users-- or they might start demanding a bloat-free text only version of my forum! So I manually submitted my Archive to Google hoping it would be added to the database.

                          According to that article (and interview with a head Goog) if a website is an island-- with no links leading into it from anywhere-- it will never be added to the database. So! Lesson learned: you must put a link to your archive somewhere on your site that Google normally indexes each month. Also, your Page Rank will of course be higher since it was found and not submitted.

                            • How could you make this only display the months/weeks when their are posts made.. IE for not popular forums some areas dont get posted often and I would rather the search engine not get the "No posts, please go back.:" phrase so often.

                              • Doing this would make the display time unbearable I believe. Maybe not if your forum DB is really small.. but if you want to remove the dead weeks you would have to query each week as it is displayed in the list..... adding many many queries to the week-list.

                                Good idea, easy to implement, but mind-boggingly slow if it's done.
