  • archive problem Get Error 404

    Well a while back I upgraded to 3.0.3 from an older version and turned archieving on and it worked with no problem. since I have upgraded to 3.0.6 and I have noticed latley that I havn't had many bots on my site.. so I check to see if the archieve is working and when I click on it in the admincp I get the 404 error in my browser.. is there somthing that I should be looking at?

    I know I am running an older version of php (4.2.2) and I know it's buggy but I need to live with it for now.. and it was working before.. I am runnig apache 2.0.40

    any help would be really appreciated!!

    Since you're running Apache 2. Try this. Create a .htaccess file in root of forum public directory and place the following in it:

    AcceptPathInfo On

      yup that worked! thanks

      oh and if I use image paths in the title of the forum such as
      '<img border="0" src="/forum/images/arcticcat.gif" align="left" width="131" height="30" >'
      to display a forum as a picture does that hinder a search engine robot from going into that forum?

      Or is there an easier way to do this?
