I think if you use Explorer as browser, you will get error message and not a blank page that Firefox gives.

Re: Link to Frontpage

I searched for this problem, but did not find a solution. Thats why I posted my solution to this problem, so others can be helped.

Alternatively, one can only have a link with text.

<a href="./../index.php">To the frontpage of the site</a>.

Check that the files are present in phpBB3 directory. Check the permissions for phpBB3 directory and the files and directories in it.

I have solved the problem by adding this line prior to these htaccess entries, which make an exeption for the personal avatars so they not are affected by this: ## Allow phpBB3 personal uploaded avatars to be visible, Access to moderationpanel from dropdownbox in post RewriteRule ^phpBB3/download/fi...

Re: My forum loading very slowly.

I have the cheapest webb hotel in Europe and now and then the forum gets very slow. It is probably caused by overload of the database server. Cheap web hotels tend to have too many customers on each server and then the database can get too busy and the forum gets slow. In one case the web hotel move...
