    Hi Simon,

    First, you have once again done some awesome work with this script. I remember awhile back when this first came out. It is amazing what you have accomplished with this project. :applause:

    Second, if it's not too much trouble, I need some help with .htaccess. I have installed the esyndicat directory in the root directory of my site. I also have several other websites running as subdomains under the same url. As I'm sure you already know, the subdomains for my other sites show up as files in cpanel file manager.

    Somehow, the main .htaccess file used in esyndicat causes my subdomain files to not exsist, or at least that is what the error log tells me. When I clear out the .htaccess file from esyndicat, my subdomains are all ok again, but of course, the esyndicat script doesn't work properly. Any suggestions? :unsure:

    Hi Khunjack,

    Glad it's not only me.... I am still playing around with the .htaccess file.. if I come up with anything, I will let you know. In the meantime, Simon is awesome in providing support in this forum. I'm sure he will get to us soon.

    Same here. I wasn't going to post. But what the heck.

    Had the problem with the free version. I want to purchase Pro. But want to know the fix for this problem first.

    Thanks, Scott

    This indeed is a problem. I used to have it but now I solved the problem here's how:

    Under each of your subfolder that hosts a new site, write the following in the .htaccess file: (replace index.php file with your own index file name and extension.)

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    ErrorDocument 500 /dir/500.htm
    ErrorDocument 404 /dir/404.htm
    ErrorDocument 403 /dir/403.htm
    ErrorDocument 401 /dir/401.htm
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks too,

    I was wondering if this redirect will affect search engine spiders or placements in anyway?

    If not I can use it on some other sites lol.

    Anyone with this kind of knowledge can answer this?

    Mod_rewrite is transparent for search engines. I do not think it could affect negatively.

    P.S. I think I should include the solution in our next version. Thanks again for it.

    after installing this directory software, i have closed my other sites on the same server because they were not working.
    i applied this htaccess
    and now all other sites are working well.
    thanks barryjohnson

    Hello everyone, I hope this message finds all that read it in good health n spirits. To be honest I am rather discouraged in the script. When installing the new install there were many files that weren't available which I had to make like ads for one. I loaded it on the server and set the permissions accordingly. I go to where the directory should be and there is a blank page. I have tried the mod rewrite option that was the start of this thread and see that hasn't helped. I just can't understand why some one would put out a script and I was looking at the pro version but can't put the free version in full operational order. Makes me leary of the pro version and I have another directory that I was looking at and or was planning on having migrated. awfully sad. is all i can say.

    best luck to all,
