Settings.php Page Coming Up Blank

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi - I messed up. I was manually trying to move my installation to the public_html root directory and thought it would take only 2 changes: 1.) change the default vanilla path from to on the Settings.php admin page 2.) move all files form /vanilla to / OK - so I got that I was wrong! ;) Now after putting everything back that way it was, I cannot get to the settings.php to reverse my step 1 listed above, and that page, as well as my Discussion pages are coming up blank or with an error. - Disscussion.php error - Not Found The requested URL /comments.php was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Apache/1.3.37 Server at Port 80 --------- settings.php page is blank - no error or anything. Sorry for the time and trouble, but if you can point me to my wrong ways with some assistance, I will greatly appreciate it. The real URL is here: Here is a copy of my settings.php: ------- <?php // Application Settings $Configuration['SETUP_TEST'] = '1'; $Configuration['APPLICATION_PATH'] = '/home/papertra/public_html/vanilla/'; $Configuration['DATABASE_PATH'] = '/home/papertra/public_html/vanilla/conf/database.php'; $Configuration['LIBRARY_PATH'] = '/home/papertra/public_html/vanilla/library/'; $Configuration['EXTENSIONS_PATH'] = '/home/papertra/public_html/vanilla/extensions/'; $Configuration['LANGUAGES_PATH'] = '/home/papertra/public_html/vanilla/languages/'; $Configuration['THEME_PATH'] = '/home/papertra/public_html/vanilla/themes/pt/'; $Configuration['DEFAULT_STYLE'] = '/vanilla/themes/pt/styles/green/'; $Configuration['WEB_ROOT'] = '/vanilla/'; $Configuration['BASE_URL'] = ''; $Configuration['FORWARD_VALIDATED_USER_URL'] = ''; $Configuration['SUPPORT_EMAIL'] = ''; $Configuration['SUPPORT_NAME'] = 'techmeister'; $Configuration['APPLICATION_TITLE'] = 'papertrade - a collaborative stock picking forum'; $Configuration['BANNER_TITLE'] = 'Collaborative Stock Picking'; $Configuration['COOKIE_DOMAIN'] = ''; $Configuration['COOKIE_PATH'] = '/papertrade/'; $Configuration['SETUP_COMPLETE'] = '1'; $Configuration['LAST_UPDATE'] = '1157392382'; $Configuration['LOG_ALL_IPS'] = '1'; $Configuration['ALLOW_NAME_CHANGE'] = '0'; $Configuration['PUBLIC_BROWSING'] = '1'; $Configuration['DISCUSSION_POST_THRESHOLD'] = '1'; $Configuration['DISCUSSION_TIME_THRESHOLD'] = '30'; $Configuration['COMMENT_POST_THRESHOLD'] = '2'; $Configuration['CAPTCHA_ON'] = '1'; $Configuration['CAPTCHA_VERSION'] = '0.1'; $Configuration['EXTENSION_VOTE_VERSION'] = '1.0'; $Configuration['ADDON_NOTICE'] = '0'; $Configuration['NOTIFY_SETUP'] = '1'; $Configuration['EXTENSION_POLL_VERSION'] = '1.2'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_SETUP'] = '1'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_MESSAGE'] = 'Welcome to papertrade! <br>If you are new, please read the Welcome message below'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_DISAPPEAR'] = '1'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_TIME'] = '8'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_TEXT'] = '060'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_LINE'] = 'FFFF00'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_BGCOLOR'] = 'FFFFCC'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_ALIGN'] = 'center'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_LINESIZE'] = '2'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_LINEHEIGHT'] = '200'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_MARGIN'] = '10'; $Configuration['ANNOUNCE_FONTSIZE'] = '13'; ?> --------- Regards, Scott

    Hi Everyone -

    I ended up just deleting the installation and starting over since I didn't have much to lose at this point.

    Big thanks for Mark and anyone else who is developing Vanilla. I can't believe that with the size of the Vanilla install (~1.6MB unzipped) how much this small package packs a huge punch. I deleted my phpBB installation that I was going to use for my forum at first, and am a Vanilla believer.

    Also thank you to all of the extension developers out there. There are so many awesome extensions!
