SMF and friendly URL's on DH

software development


I have a problem with my SMF disscusion board.

On the old host I used a friendly URL’s option(with .html & no ?) and all external links were friendly linked.

On the DH is not working. Example;
Without Friendly URL’s:

Serwer send info: “No input file specified.”

Can You help me with this? It’s a very important for me.

I’m sorry for my english :slight_smile:


Looks like you haven’t set up the options for mod_rewrite. I’m not an expert on setting it up at all, so I can’t help you with that, but that is the problem by the looks of it. You will need to edit your .htaccess file.

SMF doesn’t use mod_rewrite, like the help pop up says, it needs php to be compiled as an apache module rather than running as a cgi. Check if this is the case.

DH by default uses PHP as CGI,PHP&Databases/_PHP#What.27s_the_difference_between_PHP-CGI_and_PHP_as_an_Apache_module.3F
There is a long explanation and also how to change to module, It may help you.



Thanks! It worked!
I added this line

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .phpto my .htaccess file and the friendly URL’s returned to life
