Help - My Phpbb v3.0.12 Forum Has Crashed After SEO Install

Postby tobinuk » Sun Jun 29, 2014 12:34 pm

Hello all,

Yes I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but here goes!!

I installed Phpbb v3.0.12 a few weeks back and purchased the Charon Responsive theme compatible with PHPBB. I then added a few topics and changed a few pieces of code in the styles & templates folder. None of which (incidentally) interfere with the SEO MOD coding..... It was really plain sailing!!

In my domain/install.xml instructions all the coding that required replacing/adding was present in new theme with no conflicts or missing code. I can confirm that I have gone through all the files that required code adding/replacing, even re-started & checked it all through 3 more times. All code is where it should be.

    phpbb_seo/phpbb_seo_install.php was accessible and appeared to have installed ok (it said so)

    PHPBB SEO tab is visible within phpbb admin

When trying to access my homepage I just get a white page!? http://www.CashScout.co.uk

I have uploaded the .htaccess to root as instructed which I created after I set my urls in the admin settings. I also synced the forums etc, cleared template cache etc ... I have been at this for over 12 hours going from FTP and this forum. Is this .htaccess issue?

I really hope that someone would be so kind to point out where I maybe going wrong?

Thank god for for community forums.......My brain has melted :)

Ok resolved................ I think?!

I made another back-up of my broken forum (just incase) as thankfully I had a previous working back-up before i installed seo mod.

I then deleted all phpbb files from root and installed the premod version instead. I then ran a fresh install with a fresh database. Once installed and working URLs (yay) I then edited the config.php in root to reconnect to my previous/old database, which I kept instead of connecting to the fresh DB I created in new premod seet-up....

And it worked.... All my test posts and seo urls work in harmony!! http://www.cashscout.co.uk

Chuffed to bits! Hope it helps someone else in the future!!

On with logo design now!
