Hello, I am getting a strange error with my forums: https://forums.minewarsgaming.com/
On my forums I currently have two test topics created in our General Discussion forum. One created by a "Newly Registered User" then approved by a moderator and one created by an admin. However, when I visit both of these topics I am met with the following error "The requested page could not be found." Checking dev tools reveals I am receiving a 404 error for "viewtopic.php:1". This is repeated by me, a few other friends, and rather or not a user is a guest or has write permission. However, viewtopic.php is on my web server.
I am very new to this so please forgive me if I am missing a very obvious configuration step.
Here are some of my server statistics if that helps anything:
Board Version: 3.2.2
PHP Version: 5.6.35
Database: MySQL 5.5.59 MariaDB
Hosted by: Rackcrate (Dedicated hosting company. Typically does not provide configuration support, only support for the dedicated machine.)
Hosting Software: cPanel
Installed by: Softaculous phpbb installer for cPanel
Here are a few things I have tried with no luck:
Trying different client machines
Trying different browser
Modifying Cookie secure (Turning SSL on and off)
Anyways, thank you for the help in advance. I am currently not in a rush since I do not plan to start pushing our forums until the end of the month at the earliest, so I have some time to work on things. Also, if it comes down to it, I can do a full reinstall. Other than the theme I made (based off proflat) I have no data on this forum I care about yet so I am willing to try anything right now and I have already backed the theme up.
Currently, my only ideas are that it is possible part of the file could be missing. From what I have read on the forums it looks like the general consensuses is to never use script installers like the one provided by cPanel. Or it could possibly be some sort of security measure in place preventing the forums from working, like file permissions or something along the lines of that, maybe I have the wrong permissions set at the file level?
Thank you for taking the time to read my long post and thank you for your assistance, I look forward to a reply.
