Expression Engine question

apps

#1

I’ve just installed Expression Engine Core for my blog, which DreamHost doesn’t support, so I really need someone’s help!!

I’ve just upgraded from pMachine free to EE Core, and have lost my old site, so there’s no turning back I guess. I’ve been able to import all my old posts and comments as far as I can see, but now I have broken links.

My blog is at http://www.planet-roz.com/myblog/

I notice that when you click on a comment link (e.g. scroll down, and click on the comments for the post “What’s This?” on April 7), the url is http://www.planet-roz.com/myblog/index.php?/site/comments/whats_this/ and it works fine.

However, when you scroll down to the very end of a page and click on one of the page numbers to go to the next page, when you hover your mouse over the link, the url is www.planet-roz.com/myblog/index.php?/P10 (no “site” after the index.php?), and so it’s a broken link.

According to the EE Core forums, the problem I’m having is that my server isn’t correctly supporting the ”path_info” server variable. I have tried everything the EE people told me to try, but it doesn’t work.

Can anyone help, or do I have to get DreamHost to support the “path_info” server variable?

I’m not sure if i completely understand this… but I’ve installed the same engine this morning and had a similar issue.

Check out this message on the EE Knowledge Base…
http://expressionengine.com/knowledge_base/article/main_page_content_appears_on_every_page_i_get_404s_except_on_the_main_page_/

I changed the “Force Query String” preference and I modified the qtype variable to 2 on my index.php and it seems to have fixed the problem… at least i’m not getting the 404 errors I was getting previously.

Did you try this?

For some reason, that doesn’t work for me. I already tried both “fixes”, but still no joy.

I’m having a similar issue but with a twist. I have EE installed on two different DH machines and on one I need to use the fix but on the other it works fine w/o the fix.

Is PATH_INFO running correctly on some machines but not others?
