Oh, thanks for the quick reply.
I thought it was a .htaccess issue.
The problem now is: which one is the right folder?
I have tried to do that, but I am going from bad to worse.
Now I even got a 403 Forbidden message.
Right now, at my root directory I have the old vBulletin installation I want to get rid of as soon as this issue is solved, and it has an .htaccess file.
Then in the /forum directory (where I have the converted phpBB installation which has taken over from vBulletin all users and messages) which I would like to open to the public as soon as I get rid of the old vBulletin installation, but at the moment it is password protected, and which also has its own .htaccess file.
Then the /test directory where I an conducting all these tests, that is , where I have uploaded first the normal phpBB 3.0.11 files, then the phpBB SEO Premod V 3.0.11, except the install directory and the config.php file, then opened up the phpbb_seo/phpbb_seo_install.php file and so far so good.
Trouble starts when I go to the ACP and in the phpBB SEO tab and select to Yes the Activate URL rewriting option: I go to the forum and when I click on the topic I get a "Not Found, The requested URL /try/your-first-forum-f2.html was not found on this server etc etc" message.
So I go back to the phpBB SEO tab in the ACP and in the .htaccess option on the left hand side I select the option "Save the 'htaccess file into the /test/phpbb_seo/cache folder", then move it into the /test folder by overwriting the existing .htaccess file, and I get the 403 Forbidden message below.
So I delete this .htaccess, and no longer get the Forbidden message but I am back to square one: 404, file not found.
So, what am i getting wrong?
Can you please help me?
Thanks a million.
PS: if I install the phpBB SEO Premod V 3.0.11, do I need to install the Ultimate SEO URL mod v0.7.0 at all?
