Issue logging in with my IPB4 upgrade

So I just upgraded my test board and it seems to be fine for now except one thing.


I am logged in fine. However, if I try to login as a regular member(under a test account), it redirects me back to my actual main board instead(which is on 3.X still). Why is this and how exactly do I fix this?

In fact none of the links work when you click on forum or threads...they all redirect back to the 3.x board saying there was an error.

I had this; in the ACP you need to turn friendly URL's on and download the htaccess file, and reupload it to your 4.0 root folder. (Example: If 4.0 install is located on https://www.domain.tld/ips4/ then it'd be in that folder). Also check your conf_global.php file and if there is a $INFO['use_friendly_urls'], set it to '1'; 

If you don't want Friendly URLs turn it off in the ACP and if there is a $INFO['use_friendly_urls'] set it to '0'; 

I hope that helps. As I said I had the same thing, and the above fixed it.
