seo premod phpbb - url rewriting does not work.

Postby bellwether » Sat Mar 30, 2013 2:32 pm

Hey there,

I created this forum - hairtalkforum.com, (my first installation of phpbb with seo premod phpbb) Everything went fine. I have also installed admin user add module which allows admin to add users.

I have set "activate URL Rewriting" = "Yes", but dont see urls with actual topic names. When i created some same posts, the actual title of the topic wont show up. It just shows up as "topic1.html", "topic2.html" etc.

this is a brand new setup.. how should i proceed? can any one who has experience assist? Thanks.

Here's my htaccess file. Its located in the root folder, so is my phpbb installation. (i have replaced my domain name with "domain-name" since it is not allowing me ot post more than one url in this post)



# Lines That should already be in your .htacess
<Files "config.php">
Order Allow,Deny
Deny from All
</Files>
<Files "common.php">
Order Allow,Deny
Deny from All
</Files>

# You may need to un-comment the following lines
# Options +FollowSymlinks
# To make sure that rewritten dir or file (/|.html) will not load dir.php in case it exist
# Options -MultiViews
# REMEBER YOU ONLY NEED TO STARD MOD REWRITE ONCE
RewriteEngine On
# Uncomment the statement below if you want to make use of
# HTTP authentication and it does not already work.
# This could be required if you are for example using PHP via Apache CGI.
# RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]
# REWRITE BASE
RewriteBase /
# HERE IS A GOOD PLACE TO FORCE CANONICAL DOMAIN
# RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.hairtalkforum\.com$ [NC]
# RewriteRule ^(.*)$ domain-name/$1 [QSA,L,R=301]

# DO NOT GO FURTHER IF THE REQUESTED FILE / DIR DOES EXISTS
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule . - [L]

You need to use URL rewriting type: Advanced. Changing this option requires an .htaccess update. Run /phpbb_seo/sync_url.php afterwards.
I install and configure phpBB-SEO (and other mods) for a fair price and very fast. If you are interested simply send me a private message.

Stephen, It worked like charm! Thanks a ton buddy.

P.S: I did not execute the sync_url.php script. When i try to access the script from browser (logged in as board admin), am being redirected to login screen and when I submit login credentials again, it takes me back to the index page. Just curious to know if this step is mandatory.
P.P.S: Btw, contact me if you have any Internet marketing requirement. I will do that for you at a really good discounted price :)
