404 after posting a reply with "Activate URL rewriting: yes"

Postby mtsandeep » Mon Aug 17, 2009 7:02 pm

i installed the phpbb3 seo mod. i got almost every thing right.

when Activate URL rewriting: is set to yes, after posting a reply, i get redirected to a 404 page. The reply is successfully posted but i see a 404 page after replying.

I can create threads without any problems.

Can any one help me on this???

Please make sure you followed ALL of the steps.
For a smooth install :
1) Backup all your files;
2) Apply the mod code changes on copies of your files;
3) Upload all files;
4) CHMOD the phpbb_seo/cache/ folder to 0777;
5) Empty the phpBB/cache/ folder : just delete all files EXCEPTS the .htaccess.
6) Go to yoursite.com/phpBB/phpbb_seo/phpbb_seo_install.php and follow the install instruction
7) Go to phpBB ACP : It's now time to play with settings described bellow;
8) Generate your personalized .htaccess and upload or move it following the instructions;
9) Test a rewritten URL, such as yoursite.com/phpBB/post1.html, if you end up with a 404 (not a phpBB message), go back to step 8;
10) Activate URL rewriting in phpBB ACP and allow yourself some auto-congratulation :D

this problem is now solved, it was caused due to the Instant post redirect mod. I removed that and links are working fine
