Hello, search is returning "Page Not Found" error

Please help as I really like the forum software so far. My forum is pretty empty as it just launched with 1 thread, but I hope this is just some oversight of mine.

Thanks

    Maybe it has something to do with your .htaccess file. Did you change that? Or just upload and hope for the best? Looks Like Vanilla 2.0.18.4 or .8

    I think you need to check the Forum root settings like htaccess or some other setting in config.php

    Hello

    excuse my ignorance, but what exactly am I supposed to be looking for? I made no changes to the config.php file and no htaccess file that I know of. It is version 2.0.18.8

    To give a bit more insight. Search appears to be the only thing broken and I started looking at my .htaccess file. It appears I might have to change the RewriteBase line although I would assume that if I had an issue there it would not even load the forum.

    Not yet, but I will tonight. I think I will try to reinstall and if that does not do the trick I will replace regular search with google search, which I think would be the best bet for server load the way vanilla is structured anyway.

    Strange that it appears this is an isolated incident on my end, might be a stupid godaddy thing at the moment (which I'm in the process of fixing)

    in default.master.tpl change in your theme
    from

               <div class="SearchBox">{searchbox}</div>
    
    
                to
    
    
              <div class="SearchBox">{googlesearchbox}</div>
