problem after upgrade from 6.7.4. to 6.7.7.

Don't know if the upgrade is causing this problem or if there is another reason: i have a setup as described below, after upgrade (with potentially having deleted a hack in a modified file) it is not working anymore. When i want access the second collection (http://kerosinsteuer.wald.org/news/), i get an 'Error 404: NOT FOUND!'

Question 1: are there changes between this two versions that explain the failure?

Question 2: how do i solve the problem?

@ramadama your different blogs approach is correct. Just keep the sub-domain collection URL pointing to its root: http://sub-domain.example.com/. For the second collection you can use a stub (http://b2evolution.net/man/stub-file) file, so try this:

Create a folder info in the root directory of your site.

  1. Copy & paste index.php and .htaccess to it.
  2. Open info/index.php and do the following:
    1. Modify the first statement to correctly find the config.php main file. i.e.: change it from: require_once dirname(FILE).'/conf/_config.php'; to require_once dirname(FILE).'/../conf/_config.php';
    2. Add the ID of the collection you're pointing to. You can find a line with the following text:
      //A blog has been requested... Let's set a few default params:
      $blog = 99; // Replace 99 by the ID of your own collection
  3. Set the URL Relative to baseurl or Absolute URL. In any case, the final URL should be something like: http://sub-domain.example.com/info/

That might do the trick. Please let us know.

Regards!

To my knowledge, there is no change that would explain that between 6.7.4 and 6.7.7.

The 404 page is from you web-host, not from b2evolution. It means that the problem is before b2evolution gets a chance to execute. This looks like an htaccess file issue.

Verify that you did not accidentally damage/modify your .htaccess file during upgrade.

Thanks a lot Francois, you helped opening my eyes: the mistake was on my side.

I forgot to remember that our b2e runs on another domain, call it http://where_my_b2e_sits.net and instead of locating the /news-folder in http://kerosinsteuer.wald.org (which is pointing to http://where_my_b2e_sits.net) it has to go to http://where_my_b2e_sits.net.

seems to work now .... ooops: what is wrong that the comment form below the postings does not load? It tries to load, but does not show:
http://kerosinsteuer.wald.org/news/?p=1556&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1

The form is probably not loading because you are mixing domains.

You need to check in your browser dev tools where it tries to load the form.
