  • login.php page missing

    For some reason the "forgot passord page" has gone missing.

    http://www.xxxxxx.co.uk/forum/login.php?do=lostpw

    I've checked on the web server and the login.php page is there and have even uploading it again, but when ever I go to it, I get a 404 error message.

    Any fix for this?

    Thanks

    This may be due to mod_security. See this thread:

      Had a look at the thread and it says:

      "Make or edit your forum .htaccess file and add the following code"

      There's no .htaccess page in the forum folder that I can find.

      How do I create one?

      Also, I've re-installed the forum using the Install procedure and i have the same problem. Plus, I've noticed that the email confirmation page is also missing.

      I'm using the same hosting facility for a couple of other forums and they are okay. So I'm think perhaps it is'nt the .htaccess problem.

      Could it be caused by something else?

        You need to create a text file and save it as ".htaccess" , within that file follow the directions in the link.

          Thanks.

          Used notepad and create a file called .htaccess and uploaded it to the main forum folder.

          Still can't see the missing pages.

            Next, reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file.

            Next, disable all plugins.

            Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

            define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

            Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it. Do you have the same problem?

              Tried all the above, but the pages were still missing.

              However, I've created a new empty database and set up the forum with it and everything is working ok now.

              Do you think it was a database problem?

                Hard to know for sure. All the known causaes of this are in the link I provided, including template changes which are database-related.
