View Full Version : 404 error
February 27th, 2011, 07:36 PM
I'm getting a 404 for the installation script.
I have the 4.0.2 installed in my root directory.
I have the forum path as 'home/sitename/public_html'
I'm not sure what I'm missing.

Did you upload the forums directory from our downloaded code to whatever server path your vbulletin exists at? For instance if your forums are in your web root you would have uploaded the contents of the forums directory of files from us to your web root.

Yep and I just uploaded the whole gallery folder.

a 404 error meens file not found.. that meens that when you do
http://www.yoursite.com/admincp/vbgallery_install.php the file is not there!!!
the content of "forums/admincp/" in the package goes to your admincp folder.. (where ever you have put it!!!)
the content of the "forums/includes" folder goes to your vbulletin includes folder...
And other completely different thing..
IMHO i think your forumspath should start with a slash if you are on linux..
so not 'home/sitename/public_html'
(this should though NOT give you a 404 error...) 404 meens that the file was not found where you called it.

Ok, I got it out of a 404 error... now it's a 500 error...the 404 error was a typo on my part.

would be helpfull to be able to have a look.
PS: Usually a 500 error is a server error like directory permissions, a space after the closing ?> etc.. etc...
but in this case, if you can log in your admincp this is not the case.

The site is kansascityasg.org
