just to inform you all:

it seems that somehow the webserver does not correctly work with .htacces url rewriting rules for pretty urls ....

after a few checks i had to deactivate the pretty urls, pretty  formatted urls will not work until further notice,
i know this is a problem, because in the last year every linkage to the forum was done using the pretty url scheme

i hope i will find a fix for that.

but i encountered some more maintenance work here on my site, perhaps it is the webhoster that does some
maintenance tasks, and i will re-enable the feature as soon as it is working again !

thx for patience!

Most Apache web servers these days have support for mod_rewrite and .htaccess files, so there should be no problem in that area.  I assume that you are using UTF-8 database encoding.

Well, the above link does not seem to be functioning correctly.

I have noticed that not too many people are visiting the Forums at the moment (about 1/4th of normal).  I also found out that some people can not even get into the Forum at all.

i dunno what happened today, first it was a "500 internal server error" then i run the maintenance mode from pretty urls,
and changed some settings ( pretty urls is taking ~40 mb of database ) and then everything broke, dunno what is wrong
with the htaccess files, they look ok to me, but it seems that mod rewrite is not active at my host ...

if everything brakes, i made a database backup ( ~16 MB Of Messages )

ok, it was my fault, due to using the admin interface of the pretty urls mod, the pathes needed to be set mannually to "/" from "./"
shit, wont happen again ! *hopefully* but functionality is now limited to only make pretty urls of board and topics, not the whole
action stuff ...

sorry all !  police

That is what I like so much about computers and software:  there is always something new to learn.

usually i complain about computers never have the same problems, but now i had this problem obviously had before, because i had to fix it after first install ... i remember ....

but nevertheless, the database is now a bit optimized, and i could get rid of ~40Mb database table space, so i think now that it really could last for a while ...
