Hi,

Apparently my site is having a 505 error due to an infinite loop issue in my .htaccess file. This line is creating the issue:

RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

I'm not sure what I should do with this line. Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

Code:
#    Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
#    cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
#    SecFilterEngine Off
#    SecFilterScanPOST Off
#</IfModule>

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    #    If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
    #    line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
    #    of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
    RewriteBase  /home/namesin/public_html

    #    This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
    #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
</IfModule>
This is the full code for my htaccess file that I'm using. I'm also running Apache and it's installed in the root.

It's working now. There was an issue with an index file that was loading in the root, not the index.php file. Thanks everyone. :)

Was it trying to load an index.html/htm? If so, you need to modify the HTTP vhost so that it uses index.php before index.html/htm. That way, if you ever do get an index.html/htm in the root, it won't overide the index.php.
