Forum only loads when trailing "slash" is present

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hi all,
Just installed Vanilla and loving it. By far the best forum package in the world!

But I'm having a slight problem. I installed in a directory (/forum) and it can only be accessed by typing in the trailing slash.
Here's the actual site: > (no slash after forum) doesn't work (file not found), but > works

Obviously, I'd like to not have to type in the trailing slash...

Cheers and thanks in advance or any help.

PS: I have pretty URLs disabled (set to FALSE in the config file) and don't have any plugins installed.

    Update: interestingly, this is no longer the problem today...

    Even more interesting is that it seems like Vanilla was trying to download a file if the user did not navigate to /forum/ (with the trailing slash). For example, my iPhone told me that it can not download the file...

    In any event, it seems that the issue has fixed itself - but I'll leave it here in case this becomes an issue for anyone else.

    That sounds like a server configuration issue. It's possible your host found the issue and corrected it. In any case, glad it's sorted now. :)
