[vRewrite] - htaccess generator
Mod Version: 0.1, by Bhuwan (Member) Bhuwan is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2011 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 72
Released: 02 Apr 2006 Last Update: 16 Apr 2006 Downloads: 524
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

Since vRewrite depends heavily on your htaccess file, I decided to create
this very simple script(vRewrite info is here).

1) install vRewrite - here (vRewrite is turned off by default, so it's okay to install it without a htaccess file)
2) Set your options in vBulletin ADmincp -> options -> vRewrite
3) Upload 'vrewrite_htaccess.php' to /admincp/
4) go to http://forum/admincp/vrewrite_htaccess.php
5) Data printed on screen are the contents of what your htaccess file should be (copy, paste, upload to server!)
6) delete 'vrewrite_htaccess.php' in /admincp/


April 7, 2006 / 7, April 2006 - Updated to version 0.2 to work with vRewrite 1.5 RC3

APRIL 16, 2006 - released v1.0 to work with vRewrite 1.5 STABLE

I just installed it following his procedure. Installed correctly however when I run the htaccess.php file it says at the top "VBREWRITE IS SET TO OFF". Everything is enabled in the plugin manager. What am I doing wrong?

also, in the installation instructions it says:

3) In forumdisplay, showthread, standard_error find:
Add before that:
<base href="$vboptions[bburl]/" />
there is not $headinclude in any of those files.

member.php compatability for vBulletin 3.6.0

After using the latest .htaccess generator on vBulletin 3.6.0, I had problems with the member.php page giving a 404 error. I added these two lines to my .htaccess file to fix it:

RewriteRule ^u-([A-Za-z0-9\-]+)-([0-9]+).html$ member.php?u=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}&is_vrewrite=yes [L]
RewriteRule ^u-([A-Za-z0-9\-]+)-([0-9]+).html/$ member.php?u=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}&is_vrewrite=yes [L]

This takes care of the URL both with and without a trailing slash.

My site is still getting errors on page=2 links on threads that span multiple pages. Has anyone else had this problem? None of the links to additional pages for a long thread work. What should I adjust?

Technically, nothing is required to run vRewrite. However, it does assume that you are running

* Apache with mod_rewrite enabled
* vBulletin 3.5.x

However, vRewrite can work on IIS, just that the .htaccess will be slightly different. vRewrite will also run on vBulletin 3.0.x.

i have iis what will be my .hta file
