Redirection Error while trying to install Vanilla Forum CMS on OVH Webserver
I am trying to install Vanilla Forum CMS.
- When I move all the files to my WebServer as I did when testing locally, I get a Redirect-Error (so my Browser says: The Request will always be redirected, tried with multiple Browsers).
- When I remove the htaccess-File I end up with an Error 404 requesting the File /dashbord/setup.
- When I instead edit the RewriteBase rule in the htaccess, and change the first line to # Modified as written in the htaccess, I end up with a 500 Internal Server Error. It seems it doesn't even matter what path I enter, I always end up with that.
In my root directory I have 3 folders: forum, www and bin. The Vanilla Forum CMS is obviously in the forum directory. www contains all main files. forum and bin are accessed by subdomain.domain.com.
So if you want to try it yourself: http://forum.mwt-clan.eu/ is the way to go.
I am hosting at OVH and when I go to the OVH-Manager (the place where I edit stuff about my Webhosting, Domain and such) and go to the tab "FTP - SSH" it says the base path is home/myusernamehere/.
I don't know what to do with that but I also tried entering that + "forum" into the RewriteBase rule.
I successfully installed and tested Vanilla Forum CMS locally before but I don't have a lot experience with Hosting. I however had similar path-issues before with Typo3 and my own selfmade-CMS.
