Transfer from localhost to live server

Postby grigant12 » Fri Nov 16, 2012 1:31 am

Hello and congratulations for your excellent mods.

I am trying to transfer the phpBB SEO Premod V 3.0.11 i 've installed in localhost (wamp), but i 'm having some trouble. In the root directory of the localhost (www) there is an .htaccess and the sub-directory "forum" where phpbb is installed.I have chosen the "advanced" mode and everything works fine in local.

In order to go online:
1) I backed up all the files and the database
2)copied them to a sub-directory named "forum" too, in the online root
3)restored the database and gave "cache" and "files" 777

Until now everything is good and I can access without problems the phpbb index (www.mydomain/forum) but nothing else. And I don t know what to do with the .htaccess because there is a wordpress in the root and there is already an .htaccess. Should I make one with the contents of both?? What other configurations have I to do???

I forgot to tell that i can see my forum but only as pure HTML. The css is shown only if i open the local server. Please anyone knows how to configure it? I think it s easy, something with .htaccess...

Just a guess, but maybe you're missing this tag?

Code: Select all
<base href="http://www.yoursite.com/forums/"/>


It's required in the HTML header if the base address of the page isn't the same as the URI (e.g., if you have virtual folders option turned on). As for the .htaccess, you should be able to merge them. To test, I recommend defining your "real" site name in your local computer's hosts file (e.g., "127.0.0.1 www.yoursite.com"). It will be a more accurate test since the DNS will resolve to your local 127.0.0.1 first.
