  • issue with PHP 5.3 or something

    Hello, I've installed vBulletin 5 yesterday on my Secondary Domain. Therefore i activated PHP 5.3.
    At my Primary domain runs WordPress. Until i changed the PHP Version for the secondary domain, there was a problem with the formation and the design. Looks like theres no CSS
    then i gonna fix it up by the hosting support, who's edited something in the .htacess file. they meant something old css code was there. So they commented it out. Now works the Forum but wordpress don't. So i turn the changes back. And here we are. Do someone of you have a idea how i can fix it?

    The supporter write the following:

    You can go to PHPMYADMIN:
    1. Find your Wordpress Database
    2. Click on it
    3. Click on WP_Options
    4. Find siteURL, then click Edit, and put in the domain name.
    5. Find homeURL, on Page 2 click Edit, and put in the domain name.
    6. Done!
    so i did it for the WP DB but now doesn't both sites working. So i have to turn back this changes too
    Now works the Primary Domain perfectly, but the secondary domain shows only the deformed fronted and the forwarding doesn't work by a 404 Error

    do someone have a idea how i can fix it up?

    with best regards, Hannes

      its about this domain: [URL=""][/URL=""]

      and which config do you mean? (sry, vBulletin newbie)

      if you mean the php in /core/includes , here it is:
