XF 1.4 Help! Broke my site with .htaccess and route filters!

Discussion in 'Troubleshooting and Problems' started by WearableTechForums.com, Nov 22, 2014.

  1. Please help. I have been using a route filter to change forums/ to f/. I decided to undo it, so I added the following line to .htaccess and removed the filter.
    RewriteRule ^f/(.*)$ /forums/$1 [L,R=301]
    However, it did not seem to work; I got a "Failed to Open Page" error. So I undid both of the above, and I am still getting the error. What's going going on! Please help:

  3. Thank you for the quick response. Why would they not be working for me, still?
  4. Ok, I cleared my cache and it's working again. Phew. Does anyone know why the problem would happen in the first place?

    Browser cache.
  6. Okay. Any idea why the site broke in the first place, though?
  7. Got it all fixed. I think I must have had a typo and then had the cache issue. Thank you.
