Unable to install vanilla 2.6

hi folks,
I am a c# / c++ Unity developer and have been trying to get this forum up for local use of my team.

I am able to see only a 404 error when I navigate to the forum directory on the browser.

I am using xampp and had to change the default port to 8080 as 80 was blocked on my system.
I am able to see the rest of the xampp home pages and have configured MySQL properly.

Also when I opened the readme it says that this directory cannot be copied and needs to be built with composer and asks me to download
the pre built version. I tried with different pre built versions but no use. And in the readme files of the pre built versions also I see the same comment about building with composer. So am I downloading the wrong installation ?
Please help.

    This has been reported on GitHub,

    so hopefully someone will look at it soon.

    Hey @anur_p, you should be able to rename .htaccess.dist to .htaccess and I think that'll let you work around it. Sorry about that, hoping to get a patched version of 2.6 up on Monday.

    ngnix 2.6 vanilla , same here failed to install.404 Not Found

  • same here, 404 not found error on local XAMPP system. Renaming .htaccess.dist to .htaccess don't work.

    Renaming the 2.6 htaccess file worked for me (and others that I know of), so there must be something else wrong in your set up.

    We found the root cause and are fixing it for a patch release. Thanks for your patience.
