  • Apache redirection

    Hi,

    have the following Prblem, set up a /var/www/test_seite_de/forum533/.htaccess forwarding.
    From http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/ on http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/node/14

    In the file .htaccess, I have section

    Code:
    <IfModules mod_rewrite. c>
    and before php_flag display_errors off tries the following:

    Code:
    RewriteRule ^forumum533/)$ http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/node/14=$1[L, QSA] # does not work.
    RewriteRule ^forumum533/)$ http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/node/14            # does not work.
    after that.

    Does anyone have an idea how to set up the forwarding?

    vb 5.3.3.

    I'm not certain this will work. vB5 works entirely using rewrite rules, trying to put a custom one on top of those is likely to cause problems.
    It's certainly not an officially supported configuration.

      Without seeing your entire .htaccess file, we can't even begin to determine why these rewrites do not work.

        That's right, I totally forgot.
        Sorry for my mistake.
        Attached the .htaccess file renamed to htaccess.txt from the forum root directory.

          Move your custom lines above:
          Code:
          	# Main Redirect
          	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.(gif|jpg|jpeg|png|css)$
          	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
          	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
          	RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?routestring=$1 [L,QSA]

            If that doesn't work, you'll need to create an actual /forumum533 directory

          Well, I made the adjustment, you can see it in the attachment file.
          Unfortunately without result, nothing is happening.

          What do you mean new directory?
          What should the structure look like?

          Directory structure now:
          /var/www/die_seite/forum533/_vb533_Forum_

          Another thing with /forumum533 I have committed myself, it should be called forum533.

            The directory should be empty. Just like the AdminCP directory. The only purpose would be to handle redirects.

            vBulletin 5 does everything virtually. Every single URL will ultimately be redirected to index.php even access to the AdminCP. We provide an empty AdminCP directory because some people use .htaccess to block access, even though that is built into the software now. Once a URL gets to index.php, the system looks at it and determines where it should go based on a routing class. It then loads the appropriate page via the index.php script.

            As for my suggestion, it was more of a "Hope this works" than "This will solve the problem" guess. Your use case is not something the software is designed for. We didn't design it so a channel URL can be redirected to a topic URL. You might need to consult an Apache specialist who knows more about mod_rewrite directives. Configurations of this sort fall outside of standard technical support provided by us. What I know about mod_rewrite and Apache is from using Google to try and solve issues like your own.

              Directory structure now:
              /var/www/die_seite/forum533/_vb533_Forum_

              Another thing with /forumum533 I have committed myself, it should be called forum533.
              1) First off, your rule is commented out ... remove the # at the beginning of the line it or will never fire.


              2) Change ...
              # RewriteRule ^(forumum533/)$ http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/node/14 # does not work.

              To ...

              RewriteRule "^/forum533$" "/forum533/node/14"

              3) Do what Wayne Luke said and move it above the "Main Redirects".

              e.g.

              Code:
                 . . .
              
                  # Redirect old install path to core.
                  RewriteRule ^install/ core/install/ [NC,L]
              
              
                  # My adaptation
                  RewriteRule "^/forum533$" "/forum533/node/14"
              
              
                  # Main Redirect
                  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.(gif|jpg|jpeg|png|css)$
                  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
                  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
                  RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?routestring=$1 [L,QSA]
              
                  . . .
              4) Then test with this exact url:

              http://test.die_seite.de/forum533

              Then report back here with the result. Once you have that working, we should be able to get whatever it is you really want to happen to work.

                Wayne Luke unfortunately, I didn't hear you.
                Do you mean to create another directory in the fourm533 directory, like on the attachment picture?

                I made the adjustment, which alfreema suggested, but unfortunately without result, when calling test.seite.de/forum533 I won't go on test.seite.de/forum533/node/14.

                Is it the index.php on the top level?

                  What result did you get? Did it give you an error? Did it redirect somewhere unexpected? What URL do you end up on when put in test.seite.de/forum533 ?

                    If you're trying to redirect var/www/seite_de/html/forum533 where you have vBulletin installed, the redirect would have to be at the level about it. Still not really sure what you're trying to accomplish here. It is definitely outside the scope of the designed use case for the software to do redirects like this.

                      No, no error message as if the statement in the htaccess file was ignored or executed.

                      What I want to achieve is the forwarding of http://test.die_seite.de/forum533 to http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/node/14
                      It doesn't have to be a htaccess feed, maybe someone has an idea how I can do it with PHP redirection.
                      PHP forwarding, it can be a virtual forwarding.
                      The somewhat complicated approach is that the entire forum is located in channel 14 (node ID 14) and with the first call http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/ the node ID 2 is called.
                      That's my problem.

                        As Wayne has mentioned, the software simply isn't designed to do this, and it's outside the scope of the support we can provide. Even if you got it working there is no telling what else it might break given that vB5 relies entirely on redirects to function.

                          That's my problem.
                          That should be doable with Apache and you should not need PHP at all.

                          The last attachment you sent was of htaccess.txt. That file is unused and only serves as a backup of the live one, which is .htaccess. The edits you make HAVE to be in .htaccess. Can you verify that you made the changes I recommended in .htaccess?

                          As long as your redirect match string ends with $, it means the url will contain no more characters at all after the last character right before the $. So this rule:

                          RewriteRule "^/forum533$" "/forum533/node/14"

                          Means the URL path must begin (^) with /forum533, and it must end ($) with /forum533

                          e.g.

                          Testing with this should show the behavior you want:

                          http://www.seite.de/forum533

                          But testing with this would NOT work with the behavior you want:

                          http://www.seite.de/forum533/

                            Regarding the PHP customization.
                            I would like to do without the PHP customization.

                            The htaccess file is on my server as in #10 as. htaccess file, only here in the forum to upload the file.
                            I have the impression that the. htaccess is not "processed" by Apache!
                            Then I ran some tests with other parameters:

                            Code:
                            #RewriteRule "^/forum533$" "/forum533/node/14"
                            #RewriteRule "/forum533$" "/forum533/node/14"
                            #RewriteRule "http://test.seite.de/forum533/$" "http://test.seite.de/forum533/node/14"
                            #RewriteRule "^http://test.seite.de/forum533/$" "http://test.seite.de/forum533/node/14" 
                            #RewriteRule "^http://test.seite.de/forum533/$" "http://test.seite.de/forum533/node/14" [NC,L]
                            #RewriteRule "^forum533/$" "forum533/node/14" [NC,L]
                            #RewriteRule ^forum533/$ forum533/node/14 [NC,L]
                            RewriteRule ^forum533/$ forum533/node/14
                            Unfortunately without visible result, in the logs was also not logged!

                            The rights in the forum directory are as follows:

                            Code:
