  • Swapped servers now maddness happens!

    I was on a shared server, now i'm on my own dedicated server now, I can get my pages to work... They all say

    Code:
    Internal Server Error
    
     The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator,  [email protected] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
     More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
     
    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I know there is some where in here that there is a path or something to the sort. Any ideas?

    Internal Server errors are generally related to either a server problem, or added code to the vB files and/or templates.

    The first thing I recommend is that you disable any plugins and 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.

    Next, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Then change to this style and view your forums with it. Do you have the same problem?

      I'm having the same problem with all my other websites using different PHP software.

      I remember when I originally installed the software there was a website location. (/home/mike/xcpus/) Now that path has changed, but I have no idea were to get to to edit that path. Is this Valid?

        There is a forum path setting in the config.php file but I've never heard of that causing Internal Server errors.

          Yeah very unsure, I will reinstall everything. What about chmod? Think I have to re Chmod everything?

            Usually the default permissions are fine but it depends on the server.
