Seen many a thread on this but here's a few basics Qs:

I'd like to do this but: I don't want to screw up anything I've built so far.
***I'm running the default htacesss as supplied with the zip. Unaltered.

Q: Does anything else need changing before this Use Full Friendly URLs checkbox gets ticked?
Q: A sitemap is in operation. So does this need changing at all?

Q: Will any users suddenly start having login problems?
Q: File uploads: This is bound have an effect on this process.

Q: What do you need to know about my server/environment/setup and I'll supply it either here or via PC.
Q: After checking the box and holding my breath...sorry guys but I get the feeling that something rather drastic is going to go wrong. Unless this is 100% perfect on every level.

Many thanks :)

Gah major EDIT *** Sorry

Schoolboy error: NOT running the default htaccess as supplied (thought something was up) :eek:
Here it is:

Code:
RewriteEngine on

AuthName "mx5life"
AuthUserFile "/home/mx5lifec/.htpasswds/public_html/passwd"

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*$
RewriteRule ^/?$ "http\:\/\/mx5life\.com\/community" [R=302,L]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*$
RewriteRule ^m\/?$ "http\:\/\/mx5life\.com\/community\/m" [R=302,L]
Basically that ^^^ is a / redirect to /community

Yes thanks chap :)
I'm just used to many things breaking when I check boxes which seem anything to do with SEO or "better this better that".
Been there done that. Wise after the event.

I've just noticed your second post (you must have ninja posted when I was replying ;)).

Any additional rewrite rules must come before the XenForo rewrites.
