Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

Error 500 on fresh install

Hello, I just found Vanilla Forums and I decided to try it out. I uploaded all the files to my server and when I go to my site it gives me a 500 internal server error. The log says [error] Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace. I am using PHP 7 and I am running Vanilla 2.3

I'm not exactly sure what to do so any help would be appreciated.

    Please look in your .htaccess file for the following lines:

        # Certain hosts may require the following line.
        # If vanilla is in a subfolder then you need to specify it after the /.
        # (ex. You put Vanilla in /forum so change the next line to: RewriteBase /forum)
        # RewriteBase /
    

    Now do as you are adviced: change # RewriteBase / into RewriteBase / or even add the folder name if you have installed Vanilla in a subfolder.


  • That got rid of the 500 error but in the logs it is still stating the same error. The site doesn't load either.

  • Update
    So I installed 2.2 and I didn't have any problems. So it is just 2.3 for me.

    replace the .htaccess file from version 2.2 and everything will be fine ;) then you can replace the original .htaccess file from version 2.3
