Dashboard Link Error?

edited February 2014 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8


I've just installed 2.2.5 and all looks good except that when an admin clicks on the 'Dashboard' link, it displays the root of a folder:

Index of /dashboard/settings

Parent Directory
Apache Server at Port 80

I've tried reinstalling a few times, but I keep getting the same issue.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    I've kept at it and noticed that when I click the link it navigates to '/dashboard/settings/' which results in the above directory listing. But if I specifically navigate to '/index.php?p=/dashboard/settings', all is good. It doesn't seem to matter which theme I use.

    Try adding "Options All -Indexes" to your .htaccess

    The allows vanilla to load, but with a frame in the middle saying 'page not found'. Also results in 'Discussions, Categories, Activity' having 'page not found'.

    I don't know much about .htaccess, but it looks like you are on the right track and it's something to do with that. Not sure why it's a problem now....something different with 2.2.5?

    Sorry, I haven't thought about that part:

    The feature that you could skip /index.php?p= is also handled in the .htaccess by a line like that RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]

    I don't know about version 2.2.5 because it is alpha software and I wouldn't look too deep into that but you might want to check your .htaccess. Compare what you have with what you see at GitHub and with at least the .htaccess from the latest beta version: Vanilla 2.1b2
