    I'm trying to get friendly urls working, but there is one small problem I'm dealing with. With the option on, I can access the main forum, pages, and threads. For example, these pages:


    The only ones I can't access are forums, such as:


    Google Chrome gives me Oops! The link appears to be broken.

    My .htaccess is the following:

    I have mod_rewrite and AllowOverride enabled. The only idea I have is the fact that I moved my installation copy from forums.phoenixminecraft.com to www.phoenixminecraft.com. At first I used an htaccess redirect, but that made the forum links not work, even with non-friendly urls, so I just got rid of that. I've also deleted my subdomain pointing in Plesk that was pointing to forums.phoenixminecraft.com. I'm at a loss here.

    I also updated the ACP-Options-BasicBoardInformation URL, and my customer information on Xenforo.

    Thank you for the help. I couldn't get this to work reading through the existing topics on the subject.

    This directory exists:


    With friendly URLs enabled that will conflict with the "forums" route. Remove that directory.


    I see that the "forums" directory is the web root for http://forums.phoenixminecraft.com/. If you want to maintain that subdomain for redirect purposes then you can change the name of its web root to something other than "forums".
