I can't seem to use any directories that aren't part of xenforo, I get "The requested page could not be found."

How can I work around this as I have the forum installed in the root directory and I'd like to install some other software on the same domain.

Do you have any redirects set up in .htaccess?

Can you give an example URL and what should load?

Your URLS are being appended with a strange string of characters: #axzz1ac6UQbyE

You need to investigate what is adding those characters.

that's from tynt.com to track copied content. I removed it from the template and still doesn't work. I did try it with a fresh install the other day and still couldn't get it to work, which is what prompted me to post here.

Looks fine to me. That image does not exist on the server so XenForo's rewrite rules are picking it up. The same thing happens here on xenforo.com:

http://xenforo.com/community/thetfp.png

If that image existed in the community directory then it would load correctly.

The solution is to upload that image to the server. It is currently missing.

Please post the contents of your ".htaccess" file.

The default htaccess file (named "htaccess.txt") should not have this problem.

Thanks guys. I thought I was going crazy because as you can see the directory I posted, it looks like it is there, but like jake said, it's not there. Confirmed by the server admin. I really thought I was going crazy but the files were going to my home directory only not to the rest of the structure.

Mr. Brogan, can you close this thread?
