Updating from 2.3.1 to 2.6.1
I tried to update from 2.3 using this guide:
From Vanilla 2.3 or earlier:
If your forum still uses URLs including
?p=, support for this URL structure has ended. Follow these steps to switch to the simpler format:
- Confirm your server is setup to handle rewrites. On Apache, using the
.htaccessfile provided will accomplish this. Additional setup is required on nginx and other platforms.
- Test whether it is working by visiting
/discussions- if you see a discussions list (rather than a 404), it is likely setup correctly.
/conf/config.phpand find the line with
$Configuration['Garden']['RewriteUrls'] = false;and delete the entire line.
Your site should immediately switch to "pretty" URL paths instead of using the 'p' parameter. If there is a problem, re-add the line to your config and do further troubleshooting.
Unfortunately my forum went blank.
Any idea what I am doing wrong ? Should I delete all my themes and plugins ?
Thanks for your help.
P.S.: By the way, if it can help this is my server config => php7 (FPM application server by Apache), linux server, ngnix also running.
