Forums from myBB merged into WordPress

user186962 asked:

So I can create a forum in myBB but when I go to view it it takes me to a WordPress 404 page.
Even though example.com/forums/ is the forums directory and wordpress is just the homepage.
I have already tried looking through the forumdisplay.php but as far as I can see there’s nothing there that could cause the issue.


I answered:

You need to do both of these things:

  1. Edit the sample htaccess.txt that came with MyBB, moving it into the MyBB top folder (/forums) and renaming it .htaccess. In this file, you need to change RewriteBase / to RewriteBase /forums/.
  2. Enable “Search engine friendly URLs” inside the MyBB admin control panel.
