Confirmation Email problem

Post by Argonso » Sun Jul 09, 2006 7:42 pm

The People that sign up to my forums, seem to be getting an error with the confirmation email. Once they click the link the following comes out.

Not Found
The requested URL /profile.php&mode=activate&u=3&act_key=8562497 was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Apache/1.3.34 Server at Port 80

Is there anything i can do to solve this problem please help me out.

thank you.

You installed the forum using a '1click' autoinstall host. is not affiliated with any of these hosts which provide autoinstall phpBB forums.

Generally they do not provide you access to the forum files or the database - it would be best to contact your host for assistance, we have no idea what changes have been made.

Most users install the forum on a proper webhost, using the install package from our downloads page.
