Well, it's beyond me right now.
( All of this is basically in a sandbox version just trying to figure it out. Yes, I know i'm not following the rules by directly editing default.config and so on. )
I did a fresh install. The .htaccess is there, it is working and accessed. Permissions are good. I can crash everything with jibber jabber in the htaccess file. So it's reading.
New install gets the: Error: .htaccess is Missing or Disabled, or the users Folder is in an Insecure Location. -- Which is all untrue per jibber jabber.
Line 134 of the start.php comment out //require FORUM_LIB.'error_htaccess.php'; and it obviously removes the error message, and will let it run.
Make a post. Click the post. Non seo url.
Take out // on 134, and go back to error message as expected.
@define ('FORUM_USERS', 'users');
@define ('FORUM_USERS', '/users');
- Runs but with non seo url (as expected).
define ('HTACCESS', (bool) @$_SERVER['HTTP_HTACCESS']);
//define ('HTACCESS', (bool) @$_SERVER['HTTP_HTACCESS']);
- Loads index.php fine. When clicking a post calling thread.php, it then loads SEO friendly URL, but page will not load. (blank white page forever spinning load)
3am here I give up and getting a couple hours of sleep.
