error page

I go to log on to my forums and all the sudden im getting a error page. this is the first time this has ever happened and I have not had this issue ever. I have even tried to re-register, forgotten password and regular sign in, but im getting the same response.

What do I need to do??

Possible causes of friendly URLs not working (usually manifests as "404 not found" error on forum pages):

1) Your server doesn't have mod_rewrite installed. Consult with your host about this.

2) Your server doesn't have AllowOverride enabled:


Consult with your host about this.

3) The .htaccess file is not in place in your forum directory.

4) Sometimes you need to specify RewriteBase in your .htaccess file (specify the name of your forum directory):

RewriteBase /xenforo
ok, so my host changes my forum link from .com/community to community.xxxxxxxxxxxx.com and tells me that there was no way it could work the way it use to be (.com/community). I beg to differ because it worked just fine before. Then they tell me that .com/community will not work on a wordpress site. But once again, no problems before. I dont know what to say! Any suggestions?
the problem was on xenforo, but my main site is a wordpress site. as for trying 3 & 4, no.. i didnt. Just spent 93 mins with a tech guru whose going to tell me that there is no way i had it .com/community. That is would not work. He nearly killed my motivational drive at 1 am. Its working with the subdomain, but that is not how it was originally. He fixed the problem, but he also made changes that I felt were un-neccesary
