Problem with a fresh install.

This was all done on vBulletin 4.2.2.

I am having a problem with a fresh install. The main thing I am seeing is that the product system isn't working correctly. I am having some issues when trying to install products. After submitting the product xml file the page should reload back to the product list. Instead it is redirecting to the forum home page. This is not how it is supposed to do it.

Also I have some DragonByte products that will not import at all. It takes me to the please wait page and stops. I tried enabling error displaying for the forum, but the page didn't give off any errors which makes me think the import script isn't even being ran. I tried installing an addon from just to test and even though I got the redirect back to the forum home page, The product is still listed in the product list, but when I go to uninstall it, nothing gets uninstalled, which again makes me think the script isn't being ran correctly like there is an issue with the path or url, but I cant find any problems there, so I am not sure what is wrong.

The domain the forum is on,, is hosted with Bluehost and is set up as an add-on domain directed to a directory located at /public_html/dailyfantasysportszone/. There is no htaccess file in the forums root, but there is one in the public_html directory. Below is its contents.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The domain inside the htaccess file is the primary domain on the account the other domain is added on to.

I have also tried a second fresh install and the problem persists.

Thanks in advance for any help.

What version of php are you using? I set up a 4.2.2 live test site(On BH, using php 5.2.17) but can not add many products due to php version. In my case, I can not change my php version due to many other sites I have will no longer function.
So my test site will be removed soon.

Current Stable PHP 5.5.7...

I think you might need to update the php for it to work correctly for 4.2.2. Lynn posted something about it today in another post about older builds not being compatible past 4.2.1.

Do you know where Lynn might have posted this?

This is one of her last posts:

Here she suggests using PHP5.4 with vB4.2.2...

Most hosts aren't running PHP 5.5 yet and claim it being unstable despite the link at

I contacted my host (it is my site in question in this thread) and that is what they said...they won't update to PHP 5.5 server wide for a while.

It seems that vB4.2.2 should work well now with PHP 5.4 according to most support threads, etc...

Anyways, regardless, I have updated to a VPS hosting plan with the site in question now being the main domain for the hosting account.

We will be trying this install again soon and if we run into the same problems, we would love any ideas or support that anyone has.
