  • Friendly URLs problem

    Friendly URLs settings in adminCP have no effect on the links. All options do not work. Can we use vb5 on lighttpd ?

    It will work but needs a modification for the mod_rewrite. If mod_rewrite isn't already turned on, then you need to handle that first. Make a copy of your lighttpd.conf (just for worst case) and enable mod_rewrite in the modules section:
    PHP Code:
    server.modules = (
          
    # ...other modules go here
      
          
    "mod_rewrite",

    Within the same file you need to find the mod_rewrite section and add the rewrite rules for vB5:
    PHP Code:
    url.rewrite = (
         
    # other rewrite rules go here

         
    " here the re-write rules for vBulletin 5 Connect",

    Restart lighttpd so the changes can take effect.

      OK 10X this is no problem but Friendly URLs settings in adminCP do not work and cyrillic alphabet do not display in url http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-3169, this is minor bug for you but major for me. For now we do not use Friendly URLs there another bug http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-7775.

        You can't. The AdminCP options have no use.

        vBulletin 5 isn't designed to be ran without rewrite rules.

          10X but all VB5 is very strange, in admicp has many unusable options, for example Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template and many others.
          If this options not work, please remove them from adminCP, for all administrator this is great discomfort.

            All settings not working (not yet implemented or unusable) are already reported.

              One of my weaknesses is the friendly url thing. On one big board i admin, someone installed c-logic friendly seo. This board is now up for a vb 5 upgrade. How do i get it to work?

              The board was run with "Rewrite URL's And Insert Keywords" option, and no use of .htaccess.

              Typical url looks like this: /vb/showthread.php/abbreviation-list-noob-76525.html

              These are the arguments to put in .htaccess, if used.

              RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9_\-]*-(f|all)[0-9]+(p[0-9]+|/index[0-9]*)?\.html)$ forumdisplay.php/$1 [QSA,L]
              RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9_\-]*-(t|p)[0-9]+(p[0-9]+|/index[0-9]*)?\.html)$ showthread.php/$1 [QSA,L]
              RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(index\.php|\.css) [NC]


              Will it be possible to get the forum to work after an upgrade from the current 3.8.7 c-logic seo to a vb5 environment?

                You would have to talk to whoever create c-logic seo. It isn't something we support.

                  No, ofcourse not. But will vb 5 accept custom rewrite conditions in .htaccess? Like if i use the same params i use now, and move them over? If that won´t work, i have a massive problem at my hands.

                    Considering there's no showthread.php or forumdisplay.php in vB5 Connect, no.. those rules will definitely not work, and will definitely require amendments.

                      Oh, ffs, this spells disaster if true. I had such a good feeling about this, but this is definately not good news.

                            Here is a sample URL :

                              You should try using a UTF-8 character set instead of the subset Windows-1256. The browser should be able to render the URL correctly in the address bar then. However there is no available standard for placing Arabic characters in a URL without encoding them. If you know of such a standard, creating an Improvement Request JIRA is the way to go.

                            vBulletin 5 has friendly URLs by default. Old style URLs from vB3 and vB4 are not available in vB5 and never will be, as the file structure is entirely different.
                            Old URLs will redirect to new ones in vB5 though.
