The address -www.ohlookaforum.com/death-sick-f6 goes to -www.ohlookaforum.com/death-sick-f6/ when entered in a browser.

Running it through web-sniffer.net produces this result -

Can you please remove your sick depraved links from this page before you ask for help. This is a general viewing website and rubbish like that along with the other death videos you have on your pathetic site should be left for people that do a search for that disturbing crap. You say you have the videos just to get the traffic, lol what a frakkin loser. Take a hike Chez you low life, and work the problem out yourself.

OK, where to start with this.

Firstly, nobody is asking you to click the links. They are there for diagnostic purposes. Also, I made sure that the URLs I posted as links do NOT lead to anything that anyone would be offended by. If you CHOSE to click into threads and read the content of the site, that is your own choice. They are all clearly titled with what is inside and warnings are given as to the content.

As for whether the site is "pathetic", "sick" or "depraved", I don't recall asking for your opinion. I do, however, wonder why you chose to read posts and look around, seeing as you object SO strongly to the site.

The fact of the matter is, phpBB software is being used and there is a support question related to it, which I have asked here.

I don't believe I have ever said why the videos are posted, so you are incorrect there, but the reason is that people want to see them. I'm sorry you live in such a sheltered world as to be unaware of the things that go on around you.

I'm no low life and the question still remains unanswered.. so I will leave it here for the more helpful, friendly and experienced members (who haven't signed up only today to flame/spam someone) to answer.

If a moderator or admin of the site feels it inappropriate to post my url for diagnostic purposes, please feel free to edit my post accordingly.

Thanks

@ Scope :
I understand that you could not like the content linked in chez's post, but he was not promoting his site by providing with the links. However, since they where added for diagnostic purposes, I deactivated them so that everybody should be satisfied, eg, you don't get to follow them by accident, and we're able to help chez.

So back to the topic. the matter is that some dumb client (bots or browsers) will have some trouble sometime to properly use the base href tag, even though it's part of w3c.
So when you're using virtual folder, they try relative urls starting from there instead of from the base href tag and of course ends on a 404.

The good news is that we worked on the issue and phpBB3.0.6 helped us a bit by introducing an easy way to make more url absolute. We additionally added some rewriterules to take care of the left over cases, so all together, the amount of "fake" 404 should decrease drastically with the coming update ;)

I have the same kind of errors in my logs for example:

Code: Select all
[Sun Sep 20 00:59:50 2009] [error] [client 85.148.12.48] File does not exist: /home/yekcan/domains/yekcan.com/public_html/guncel-haberler, referer: http://www.yekcan.com/guncel-haberler/turkiyede-last-fm-ve-myspace-yasaklandi-t273.html#p1129


But mine is not just like yours /home/ohlookaforum/ohlookaforum.com/death-sick-f6

it's just a location of my root in ftp: home/yekcan/domains/yekcan.com/public_html/ (= root)

Will this effect the site when viewing for users? Or are these just log errors which i can ignore for the moment?

Not to mention that these error are not critical at all, all they do is adding (a lot) of lines in your error logs.

About when, it will be during the week after phpBB3.0.6 will be released ;)
