Major installation problem

    I have a muliple domains hosting account. I host 20 domains on one account.
    Here is my tree...

    cash-for-structured-settlements.net
    cgi-bin
    www.
    esyndicat (this goes with the main domain above)

    autoinsurancequoteonline.org (a folder with a domain pointing to it.another domain)
    esyndicat

    more folders for other domains below here...

    My main domain works properly with the rewritebase /esyndicat/

    http://cash-for-structured-settlements.net/esyndicat/

    But look at this directory:

    This is what shows up in my browser bar after I click on the following link:
    http://www.autoinsurancequoteonline.org/esyndicat/

    http://www.autoinsurancequoteonline.org/esyndicat/?NF_FWD=/autoinsurancequoteonline.org/

    What bunk...I have spent a lot of wasted time deleting this entire syndicat folder and reuploading the thing trying to figure out the problem.

    In the future, if I want to reinstall it, it appears that I can't just put the install directory back up on the server and rerun the install program. i don't know what else to do. Is there another way to reinstall it ? I dropped the database. I assume it would need this to recreate the tables.. anyway that's a side issue.

    Why is the above problem happening?
    Here is the htaccess file for the main on that works..

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /esyndicat/
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ index.php?category=$1 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/index([0-9]+).html$ index.php?category=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^new-links.html$ new-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^new-links([0-9]+).html$ new-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^top-links.html$ top-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^top-links([0-9]+).html$ top-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^popular-links.html$ popular-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^popular-links([0-9]+).html$ popular-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^editor-links/index.html$ editor-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^editor-links/index([0-9]+).html$ editor-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^(.*)/(.*)-l([0-9]+).html$ view-link.php?cat=$1&title=$2&id=$3 [QSA,L]


    and the only change I made was to the first two lines:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /autoinsurancequoteonline.org/esyndicat/

    The autoinsurancequoteonline.org folder is below the www. folder.
    Just look and the lame looking directory page. No pictures, and the justification is all messed up.

    ok..sorry about the internal server error

    I fixed the error. I had rewritebase ../autoinsurancequoteonline.org/esyndicat/

    I removed the 2 dots, and that fixed the error. The htaccess file works with either the autoinsurancequoteonline.org in front like this;

    rewritebase /autoinsurancequoteonline.org/esyndicat/

    or just as

    rewritebase /esyndicat/

    Either way, it isn't reading the images and it is messed up. This must have something to do with the level the folders are nested.

    Check your header.tpl file.
    In the head section make sure link to css file looks like this:
    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{$templates}/css/style.css" />
    or manually enter full path to your css file.

    ok..that fixed part of it..

    I tried this:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/esyndicat/{$templates}/css/style.css" />

    now the directory appears but the graphics aren't appearing because the domain is appearing twice...here's a snippet from the view source:

    <td rowspan="2" valign="top"><img src="http://www.autoinsurancequoteonline.org/autoinsurancequoteonline.org/esyndicat/templates/SunnyDay/img/ico-search.gif" style="margin-top: -5px;" alt="" title="" /></td>

    It's the same with the other images. Does this path get setup originally on installtion? Also, the links don't work. Implied htaccess issue. Here's my current file:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /esyndicat/
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ index.php?category=$1 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/index([0-9]+).html$ index.php?category=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^new-links.html$ new-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^new-links([0-9]+).html$ new-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^top-links.html$ top-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^top-links([0-9]+).html$ top-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^popular-links.html$ popular-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^popular-links([0-9]+).html$ popular-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^editor-links/index.html$ editor-links.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^editor-links/index([0-9]+).html$ editor-links.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

    RewriteRule ^(.*)/(.*)-l([0-9]+).html$ view-link.php?cat=$1&title=$2&id=$3 [QSA,L]

    I have this fixed now. I had to modify the header.tpl file and the config.inc.php file. Thanks for your help.
