    Hi,
    We just migrated our messageboard to a new server.

    The forum frontpage is showing fine, the problem is that nothing else seems to work. Whatever link/function you click the only think what shows up is the forums frontpage.

    We're running invision messagboard 1.3 (the last free release)
    On the former server the forum was running on php 4/mysql 4

    To make the forum run on mysql 5 i had to make a slide change to a query, but i don't think this has anything to do with my problem. Because the result set seems to be the same afther the modification.

    I asked a colleaque and he thinks that probably due to the php version change some parameters from the querystring doesn't work anymore

    For example
    Code:
    http://www.example.com/forum/index.php?showforum=10
    This doesn't show the topics from the forum but still returns the frontpage.

    Well, regarding IPB 1.3 you can have a look at http://www.ibforen.de --> most of it is in German but english should also be ok.
    There they have patches to run IPB 1.3.x with PHP5 - although I've never tried them. Also intersting is the auto-installer and a few security patches.

    And if the params from the querystring don't work anymore then you have to enable the register globals settings - either in your php.ini or locally for that site through a .htaccess.

    This looks like a problem with register_globals. Have a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87&highlight=register_globals

    Ok thank you very much, i will have a look later, when i'm able to acces my server.

    Another related question:
    Since it seems like i've to change one or more of my php settings, i need to edit php conf. Does every virtual domain has is own copy op php conf in ispconfig? Where should i edit this conf file, without it being overwritten by ispconfig?

    There's one global php.ini file, normally it's /etc/php.ini or /etc/php4/apache2/php.ini or something like that. If you want to have individual settings for each vhost, this thread should give you an idea: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5928&highlight=register_globals
