See my forum here :
Thanks for help

    I am not much of an expert, rather the opposite. But right there it's stated:

    # 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 /
  • Thanks a lot, but i'm not in a subfolder. My instal folder is domain/vanilla.

    Equally no expert, but if you have a folder containing the Vanilla files, I think that is what needs referencing in htaccess, since they are not in root.

    Simply try changing
    # RewriteBase / to
    RewriteBase /vanilla (delete the leading "#")

    Couldn't hurt trying it :wink:

  • with RewriteBase / vanillaI have this error Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    There should be no blank between "/" and "vanilla"

  • OK thanks, no more error but the same home page as without /vanilla and no possibility to get the dashboard
