i received the following error message...
404: Page not found
This error is generated when there was no web page with the name you specified at the web site.
Ensure the page you are linking to exists in the correct folder.
Check your file name for case sensitivity . Index.htm is not the same as index.htm!
Temporarily disable any rewrite rules by renaming your .htaccess file if it exists.
...when i tried to create the first thread after installation of my new forum. additionally, i created a mod.txt file with my moderator names and when i went to sign in with one, i realized that i didn't have a password. now i seemed to be able to sign in without a password and proceeded to create a thread, but once i returned to the forum, although the thread was visible, i got the same error when i try to access it.
seems odd to me that you would create the mod.txt file with names only and no password. how is the moderator able to create and maintain their password. im quite confused.
please note that i also created an about.html (didn't have any visible effect), a config.php and a locked.txt, any of which may be causing the problem i guess. although i followed the instructions carefully when i created each. you can also visit the forum if that will help diagnose the issue by navigating to connect.environmentalist.ca.
thanks for any help you can offer.
