    Hi @all,

    this morning i bought Xenforo. Installation and vb4 Import was easy :)

    At the moment I´m struggling with the URL redirects. I use this one here:

    Some Details ...
    vB was installed in /vBulletin/...
    xf is installed in /forum/....

    The 301config.php has the correct Import_Log_Table set.

    The files for the redirect are placed in /forum/...

    If I add place this in the .htaccess nothing happend (got 404):
    RewriteRule ^/vBulletin/showthread.php /forum/showthread.php
    RewriteRule ^/vBulletin/forumdisplay.php /forum/forumdisplay.php

    No matter is I place this in the root .htassecc of my server or in the /form/.htaccess .
    It won´t work.

    So did i miss something ? :(

    Please provide a specific example of an old vB thread URL and it's new URL in XenForo. I need an example to be sure about what to do for your redirects.

    I got it (y)

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteRule ^vBulletin/showthread.php(.*)$ /forum/showthread.php$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^vBulletin/forumdisplay.php(.*)$ /forum/forumdisplay.php$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^$ /forum/ [R=301]

    That works for me as root .htaccess .
