Hopefully you guys can help me since IPB support has not been able to figure this one out and I was referred here as well by them. I have a minecraft server and were trying to add IPB as the website/forum for it. We were on CentOS 6 and then my server admin moved us to Debian. When we were on CentOS everything worked, we then made a backup of everything and once Debian was loaded he then got everything running again except for IP. Content. We have made sure we did everything correctly and the IPB tech said he wasn't sure what else we could try it should be working. Also a note when I enter the URL in the advanced area all of IP. Content breaks if I don't have the redirect it works fine.
So it works when you have mod_rewrite turned off?
Possibly something wrong with your apache configuration...
Yes mod_rewrite is off it works to an extent. I have not been able to make it work 100%. I can load pages when I don't put in a URL and not have mod_rewrite enabled. What would suggest we try or fix with the apache config.
long shot, did you delete and recreate the htaccess files or copy the old ones over?
I was messing around between cent and ubuntu server on a vps (wasn't ip software though) and moving the files (copying/restoring all of them) over gave me 404 if I didn't actually create new htaccess.
I never bothered to track it down but iirc cent and ubuntu had different ownership on some files, but I didn't spend any time looking into it so that is just a guess.
Well yes but theres not .htaccess there at the moment. I just would like for this to work with or without the mod_rewrite.
short of a difference in pathing somewheres in acp or any apache include file I just cannot really think of anything off top of my head that would cause that.
were you using control panels on either system?
is database correctly reflecting the new pathings for the directories?
and I am just thinking out loud and hope someone more knowledgeable can join in.
I`ve skip from freebsd to centos 6 and appeared this issue. When i deactivate mod_rewrite i`m getting from index page the message with Sorry you couldn`t find what you`re looking for. When i activate the mod_rewrite, the index page does work but the rest of pages getting 404 error.
PS: Did changed the path from index.php located in root.
