    Hi i just migrated xenforo to a new machine and moved database and files, the issue that is friendly url stopped to work (it say like login dont exist ecc) i am ensured to:
    -enable mod rewrite:
    a2enmod rewrite
    - restart apache service
    - tried to rename htacess.txt to ".htaccess" and overwrite the old file
    none of these solutions works... any clues?

    Have you confirmed that your host allows overrides via an .htaccess file?

    Is a dedicated server so i have all controls...

    In that case, confirm that is configured.

    FURLs only really require those three things.

    well in my precedent host i didn't need to edit that, and my httpd.conf is empy ... and if i try to insert
    Code:
    # Sets the default security model of the Apache2 HTTPD server. It does
    # not allow access to the root filesystem outside of /usr/share and /var/www.
    # The former is used by web applications packaged in Debian,
    # the latter may be used for local directories served by the web server. If
    # your system is serving content from a sub-directory in /srv you must allow
    # access here, or in any related virtual host.
    <Directory />
        Options FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride None
        Require all denied
    </Directory>
    
    <Directory /usr/share>
        AllowOverride None
        Require all granted
    </Directory>
    
    <Directory /var/www/>
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride None
        Require all granted
    </Directory>
    
    #<Directory /srv/>
    #    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    #    AllowOverride None
    #    Require all granted
    #</Directory>
    into apache2.conf it i can't acces my site anymore...

    It's worth noting that editing in pertinent information after the fact can cause people to miss it. I never saw what you added before.

    All of your AllowOverrides are set to None, which prevents .htaccess from working. You should set this to All.

    I have already tried to set these to
    AllowOverride True, and after i added my site stoped to work, i will try to upgrade apache and see

    That's not a valid value for the directive. See: core - Apache HTTP Server Version 2.2

    If you're not comfortable with server management, you may want to consider bringing someone in to help (or using a host that manages the server for you). There are a lot of configurations to setup if you're setting up a server from scratch.

    The problem is in apache2.conf this part of configuration (that i copied from my old server) is missing, there is my actual configuration on it:
    Code:
    #
    # Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
    #
    # This is the main Apache server configuration file.  It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ for detailed information about
    # the directives.
    #
    # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
    # what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
    # consult the online docs. You have been warned.  
    #
    # The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
    #  1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
    #  whole (the 'global environment').
    #  2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
    #  which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
    #  These directives also provide default values for the settings
    #  of all virtual hosts.
    #  3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
    #  different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
    #  same Apache server process.
    #
    # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
    # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
    # server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
    # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "foo.log"
    # with ServerRoot set to "/etc/apache2" will be interpreted by the
    # server as "/etc/apache2/foo.log".
    #
    
    ### Section 1: Global Environment
    #
    # The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
    # such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
    # can find its configuration files.
    #
    
    #
    # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
    # configuration, error, and log files are kept.
    #
    # NOTE!  If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
    # mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation (available
    # at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#lockfile>);
    # you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
    #
    # Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
    #
    #ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"
    
    #
    # The accept serialization lock file MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL DISK.
    #
    LockFile ${APACHE_LOCK_DIR}/accept.lock
    
    #
    # PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
    # identification number when it starts.
    # This needs to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
    #
    PidFile ${APACHE_PID_FILE}
    
    #
    # Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
    #
    Timeout 300
    
    #
    # KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
    # one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
    #
    KeepAlive On
    
    #
    # MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
    # during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
    # We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
    #
    MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
    
    #
    # KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
    # same client on the same connection.
