  1. Alright, thanks Thomas Here is my .htaccess code (In case anyone can spot a simple error I'm missing somewhere within it): >Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^toptenlisted\.com RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.toptenlisted.com/$1 [R=permanent,L] # index.php to / RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /.*index\.php\ HTTP/ RewriteRule ^(.*)index\.php$ /$1 [R=301,L] # BEGIN WordPress <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L] </IfModule> # END WordPress Redirect permanent http://www.toptenlisted.com/About%20Site.html http://toptenlisted.com/ten-things-about-toptenlisted RedirectMatch permanent ^/Index.html$ http://www.toptenlisted.com
  2. Where exactly is this setting? I don't see a checkbox or anything to mark anywhere.
  3. Then why does it show up sometimes, but not other times (in the cpanel file manager)? Does it have something to do with permissions? code? Or what? (I need to see the file for when I open up a ticket)
  4. Ok, now I don't know what's going on, when I open my cpanel file manager, my htacess file doesn't even show up, but when I open my FTP program (Filezilla), there it is, but I can't access it. But even when it was showing up (in cpanel) it still wasn't working, I suppose I'll just have to open a ticket then
  5. I’m trying to move a few of my pages into new categories and redirecting the old ones via cpanel. I entered this into the redirect setup and received this error (I'm using wordpress): > Apache detected an error in the Rewrite config. Syntax error on line 14 of /home/public_html/.htaccess.E86RC8slwVDheTlEypzC8LrMW3XvwPQ9: RewriteBase: only valid in per-directory config files Then I tried just entering one of my redirects this way into my .htaccess file manually: > RewriteRule . /index.php [L] </IfModule> # END WordPress Redirect 301 www.toptenlisted.com/science/top-10-ideal-future-inventions-and-technologies www.toptenlisted.com/computers-technology/top-10-ideal-future-inventions-and-technologies But with this I get a 500 internal server error and my whole site shuts down. I also tried adding the "http://" part too, but no luck. I don’t know what else to try. (In that example I’m trying to redirect my page “Top 10 Ideal Future Inventions and Technologies” from my science category to my computer-technology category)
  6. Alright, thanks for the clarification Bruce. I suppose I'll just set up another virtual account for my new site then. Two more quick questions about resellers, if I ever take that route. Are resellers generally targeted for larger sites, or ones that may grow in the future? And concerning creating the plans, do you assign "mini-plans" in the reseller before you set everything up? Are they fixed, say if one were to exceed bandwidth, it couldn't transfer over to other unused portions of the account? (Hope that makes sense)
  7. Thanks for the link, Thomas. I suppose I'm still a little confused about resellers. Am I allowed to host "Unlimited Domains" on them (for as much as the transfer bandwidth and disk space can use)? Is that what I should be looking at for for both my current site and my future forums I want to make? (For now I decided I just want to add one site)
  8. Thanks for the cpanel info. Not quite sure what you meant by "Advanced Cpanel", is it basically a portal to smaller cpanels for different sites? Right now I know I want to create at least "one more" website. Then maybe in a few months I'll add another depending on different circumstances. Right now on the site I currently run (in sig). I wouldn't make any changes to how it's currently operating. For the other site I want to create, it will be a discussion board running off of vbulletin (completely separate from my current site). Along with maybe a small blog on it for updates, news etc.
  9. I’ve been a very happy TCH customer for the past half a year now, and I’ve been thinking about expanding my operations. I’m unsure quite what plan will best fit my needs though. I was thinking about creating one or two more websites, completely unrelated, other than the fact that I run them, so I couldn’t put them on the same domain. What plans should I focus on, what are my best options? Is a reseller account what I should be looking at? But then again, my budget isn’t very large, and I don’t think I can afford to pay $20-30 a month; I looked at the plans but am not sure as to what I should do? Also, what would become of my current account, cpanel interface, etc. would I be given a brand new account for each new site, or do I manage it all from the one I already use? Thanks again for the great service, I may have more questions concerning my issues later.
  10. I don't think I ever did anything with the "forum files (php files)". As the ticket helps me with my problem, that brings me on how to create this forum files backup. I don't think I was ever informed on how to do so, so where would I go to back these extra files up? Does it have something to do with the mySQL database, the vBulletin Admin CP, or where?
  11. I'm unsure if I have a backup. I backed up my vBulletin database, apart from the fact that it is still in the mySQL database. Is this the right type of backup being asked about? When I open my ticket, should I upload the correct backup to the server first? (If I have it, that is.) Or is this related to my vBulletin license backup, which I still have on my computer (without all my custom changes), rather than the DB backup?
  12. I was cleaning up my fantastico panel and realized I still had an old SMF forum installed on it. I deleted it, but then it affected my current forums I had installed (with vbulletin). Removing the SMF download also deleted my entire forum path (even though SMF had nothing else to do with my vbulletin forums). I had no idea removing that the download would wipe my entire forum URL path clean, it is all gone. Is there any way for me to get all my current vbulletin forum information back?
  13. Nevermind, I got it working (For some reason, it only copied half the code or so when I clicked the codebox) Thanks for all the help again, TCH is the best!
  14. I joined, uploaded the file, etc. and everything is working fine in slideshare. However, when I embeded the file into my post, all that shows up is a blank white flash screen, on my site. I used the "Embed in your Blog" code they gave (from this page).
  15. So is there no program (like slideshare) that would allow people to view the powerpoint presentation directly on a post, through a link straight from my site?
