[phpBB3] Gallery not working

Postby redtogreen » Tue Nov 08, 2011 2:37 pm

I run IIS 7.5 and have installed and activated the SEO pack.

I have generated .htaccess and imported the rules into iis.

I also have gallery installed. When I click on Gallery - nothing!

http://www.comparethekeepnet.com

Uncomment the SEO line in common.php and fine.

The rest of the site seems fine.

Any ideas? Thanks

I have partially answered this myself!

IIS needs a .htaccess rule set to be imported from each sub folder.

How can I generate .htaccess for my /gallery folder?

Thanks

OK it's done.

Site works apart from /gallery

The setup is as follows:

PHPBB3, gallery plugin

http://www.comparethekeepnet.com
http://www.comparethekeepnet.com/gallery

re-write rules in .htaccess imported to IIS for top level domain

there are NO re-write rules in /gallery. I deleted them in .htaccess as it was inheriting them from the top level and they were incorrect.

It seems the Gallery folder needs a .htaccess that works with it so I can import it into IIS or just bypassing but that would defeat the object really

It isn't working, it's just a workaround.

http://www.comparethekeepnet.com works
http://www.comparethekeepnet.com/gallery doesn't

I have put a workaround on the site by changing the link for /gallery to http://www.comparethekeepnet.com/gallery/index.php

I think what I need is a rule that re-writes /gallery to /gallery.php

If I turn off re-writing it all works. Gallery just operates as a folder with its own index.php in

Thanks

Please try to change the installation line in common.php to:

Code: Select all

if(!defined('ADMIN_START') && basename(dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'])) != 'gallery') include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/magic_seo_url.'.$phpEx);


and let us know how it helped.

When I changed the code url/gallery worked but root url didn't and threw some PHP path not found errors.

It seems like it needs a mix of both. Is it possible to do something like

if(!defined('ADMIN_START')):
include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/magic_seo_url.'.$phpEx);

elseif(!defined('ADMIN_START') && basename(dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'])) != 'gallery'):
include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/magic_seo_urls.'.$phpEx);

endif;

Can you check the syntax for me!

I do not see a problem with original code. It should work fine.

Please post error messages you see when you apply it. Thanks.
