  • @hari

    there is nginx.conf file in ask directory

    So are you using Apache or NGINX ?


  • @phenomlab idk i think i am using apache. how to check?

    3906164f-2b98-4124-b45d-e6b2db007fb2-image.png


  • @hari ok, what you have here is NGINX acting as a reverse proxy to Apache. This means you should make the changes in the Apache .htaccess file.


  • @phenomlab sir, what changes i need to make?

    getting 500 error


  • @hari you need the full path to Flarum for it to work

    Screenshot_20220120-212332.jpg


  • @phenomlab i have tired both full path and path

    /home/master/applications/sadfsdaf/public_html/ask
    
    /home/master/applications/sadfsdaf/public_html/ask/public
    

    it is not working and redirecting to the main domain.

    sir, looks like you are somewhere outside i will wait till you come online/get free.

    should i need to edit htaccess of public_html or htaccess of ask folder?


  • @hari should be the ask folder. If you drop me a PM with the server details I’ll have a look at this tomorrow.

    EDIT: I noticed you’ve raised this on Flarum’s forums


  • @phenomlab yes,

    created different app and moved files and DB now everything is working ✅

    thanks 🙂
