XF 1.1 Friendly URL's problem


Hi there

My xenforo installation is located at /forums

I use the following .htaccess file for friendly urls.

#    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
ErrorDocument 401 default
ErrorDocument 403 default
ErrorDocument 404 default
ErrorDocument 500 default
<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 /forums
    #    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]
For some reason I am getting URL's such as http://domain.com/forums/forums/staff-applications.6/

How do I fix this?

I assume you are referring to the double "forums/forums"? One is a directory. The other is a route. It is correct.

If you don't want the double "forums/forums" then you have two options:

1) Change the name of the "forums" directory on your server. Then update the URL:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL

2) Or use this addon to change the name of the "forums" route:
