.htaccess Trouble

Postby TheFalcon » Wed Feb 24, 2010 3:36 pm

Hi there,

Firstly pardon me for my total ignorance. As you will see I am a complete novice at this.

I am having trouble when I get to the .htaccess file part.

I have a site that is set up as such: "mydomain.com" (blog) and "mydomain.com/forum" (forum)

I already have a .htaccess file which obviously was included with the blog software (Wordpress)

The .htaccess file reads:


Code: Select all
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^players-profiles/([^/\.]+)/?$ /index.php?people_slug=$1&pagename=players-profiles [QSA,L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress


I am assuming I just add the required .htaccess file parts from phpBB SEO after this?

I am having trouble knowing what to actually put on it.

On my ACP it has:
Code: Select all
    # 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
    # REWRITE BASE
    RewriteBase /
    # HERE IS A GOOD PLACE TO FORCE CANONICAL DOMAIN
    # RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.pokerblackbelt\.co\.uk$ [NC]
    # RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.pokerblackbelt.co.uk/$1 [QSA,L,R=301]

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

I am just coying this directly and putting it onto the existing .htaccess folder.

If I allow the re-writing all I get is 404 error from any page. The index page is fine but if I try to access any page all does is go to 404 error page. the URL have gone from looking like this:

"http://www.mydomain.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=4"

to

"http://www.mydomain.com/forum/forum34.html which is an error 404."

Well you are going to have to merge the two .htaccess files. A good rule of thumb is that other entries should go after the phpBB-SEO entries but that is not always the case. Also you wouldn't want duplicate entries like your "RewriteBase /".
