.htaccess for forum subdirectory of web not working
 
In the web dir there is the working .htaccess for Drupal which I obtained from this forum. There is a subdirectory called forum which has the phpBB SEO version installed. When I activate URL rewriting for phpBB in the forum directory, it says 404 not found for every url and jumps to the root because of other settings for 404 not found. Below is my .htaccess can somebody tell what is wrong?

Quote:


# 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

# 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

I guess you have to change the line:

RewriteBase /

to:

RewriteBase /forum/

as your forum is not in the web root directory.

tnx for your quick reply, I tried it but it doesnt solve it. In fact also phpBB SEO should have put it automaticly to /forum/ when creatinq this .htaccess file during setup. Normally it does. Somewhere in the environment it doesn't recognise being in a subdir nor does the system obey this .htaccess when changed to /forum/
