ACtivate URL rewriting, not working

Postby solas » Tue Oct 20, 2009 9:26 pm

I was setting up a localhost environment, copying my forum name from server to local host and I accidentaly pressed save on sever instead of localhost.

Now rewriting won't work on my site and I can't activate it.

When I click on "Activate URL rewriting" and then submit, "Activate URL rewriting" always reverts back to no.

What can I do to fix this?

This is most likely related to chmod issues. Make sure that the phpbb_seo/cache/ directory AND the files in it are write-able. Because if you upload files in this directory, they can end up with not enough writing priviledges, even if the directory itself is set right, uploading does not always result in the same chmod as if the script first created the files.
