my host moved servers and now my topics won't show

Postby HB. » Wed May 23, 2007 12:43 am

Well, I hope this is in the right place, if not please move it.

My host moved all their accounts to a different server which is in a different location. Ever since the move my topics, and posts don't show. I get 404 pages. I do have the simple mod-rewrite. Has anyone experienced this before, and if so could you shed some light how to correct this problem?

Thank you
HB.

hi

i think its a .htaccess file issue
did you check your .htaccess file ?

i had a similar problem with netfirm hosting. some hosts are limited the .htaccess rules. if you are checked your htaccess file and its ok please remove this line in top of your .htaccess file (if it is exist in your file)

Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymlinks


removing this line solved my problem in netfirm hosting

Thank you for your reply, but I checked my .htaccess and I don't have that line it.

You can try adding it then, could as well be only it.

Because it looks like .htaccess related issue. Other possible causes could be mod_rewrite not being available any more on your hosting, or, the slash ("/") thing in the rewriterules :

Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^phpbb/post([0-9]+)\.html$ /phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=$1 [QSA,L,NC]


VS :

Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^phpbb/post([0-9]+)\.html$ phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=$1 [QSA,L,NC]


Noticed the slash before the path (here phpbb/ vs /phpbb/).

Hey, guys thanks for pointing me in the wrong direction. After a second take I noticed all the changes in the htaccess were deleted and looked like what is below. It's a good thing I keep a backup copy, and should be able to fix this in a min.

Wrong direction, are you sure ?

Anyway, the .htaccess you posted misses the rewriterules, so I doubt it could work as is.

Did you fixed it ?
