    @peregrine‌ I am using nginx, as that's what everyone suggests for VF even the VF developers from what I can figure.

    I've been hunting around this forum this last week to get the rewrites working for a standard 2.1.5 installation without any customization. Is there an official nginx setup guide for VF 2.1?

    The best I could come up scouring the forums was placed:

    Thanks!

    Is there an official nginx setup guide for VF 2.1?

    no. but I'm sure you can look at error logs and/or error logs to see what is giving you whoops errors

    I suspect the symlinks are creating issues for you. why are you trying to make it so difficult?

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    @peregrine‌ I have since removed the symlink, and I'm still having the same error. I am not sure how that makes anything difficult. I've been deploying web code like that for over a decade on various *NIX platforms without a problem.

    Now, the nginx I would love to make simple, as you're correct this has been the most difficult task thus far.

    It wouldn't be so difficult, assuming a working configuration file somewhere worked with the setup mentioned in the above post, as the ones mentioned in the post above do not work. As such, leading me to the configuration that I have now that at least half-arse (from what you say) works.

    From the various posts I've read you're one of the brightest on VF and you've mentioned yourself that nginx works best.

    So, if it works best, can't we get a best-pratcies standard nginx configuration file? The one on github doesn't work on the installs I've done from scratch and below away.

    If you're able to throw a bone on a static configuration file for the web server that'd be a huge help on that above post.

    However, till then it's a pecking game of figuring it out.

    if it were me and I couldn't get it to work with nginx.

    @rotecho said: I've been deploying web code like that for over a decade on various *NIX platforms without a problem.

    adding a symlink (may not be an issue), but the goal is to simplify (when troubleshooting) from my 3+ decades experience in *NIX

    I would at least try apache to see if i have the same errors or if they go away.

    if they go away, it is your nginx setup. I have no bone other than that. I am not a NGINX expert.

    So, if it works best, can't we get a best-pratcies standard nginx configuration file? The one on github doesn't work on the installs I've done from scratch and below away.

    Personally, I would prefer the developers spent their time making all staff add-ons in this forums add-on section work in vanilla 2.1 without making the community jump thru hoops. then we could reduce about 1/3 of the questions on the forum.

    @peregrine‌ haha I'm close to 3 decades. I'm only at 20. Started on Linux/Nix in 95 and haven't skipped a beat. I've deal with enough symlink issues to know it wasn't the problem.

    However, you're right about the rewrites. Stripping the rewrites out of my configuration things seem to function smoother. Still couldn't get the previous configurations working (did it for shits and giggles to see if I was loosing my mind).

    Sorry to have bugged you.

    Removing the rewrites allowed the upgrade to happen properly.

  • Hi All, I just attempted an upgrade to v2.1.6 from 2.0.18.10 on a dev computer. When I copied the new files over and reloaded the dashboard everything looked as if it were alright. When I then went to yourforum.com/index.php?p=/utility/update as indicated in the github page instructions for upgrading, I got a bit screen saying that the upgrade was not successful. It seems to be working alright, but now I'm worried. How should I interpret this message, and/or verify that my upgrade did or did not work?

  • Thank you @peregrine. The first link (http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/comment/220447/#Comment_220447) helped. I was getting that same error, and running the sql command alter table GDN_Tag drop index UX_Tag appears to have taken care of the problem.

  • Plaese help! After updating to v2.1.6 suddenly the embed function on my forum is not working. There's no visible error on the page where the forum is embedded. The Embed plugin is still enabled. The main thing I am noticing is an error in the browser console:

    Refused to display 'http://forum.okgo.net/index.php?p=/&t=1420047375642&remote=http%3A%2F%2Fokgo.net%2Fforum&locale=' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'SAMEORIGIN'.

    Use the "Forum Embed" feature instead of the plugin. Get the new code from the Dashboard.
