    sprted that but now

    Seems your webhosting does not support mod_rewrite rules required by aMember. There may be several reasons:
    • You have not uploaded file amember/.htaccess (it might be hidden and invisble with default settings)
    • Your webhosting has no mod_rewrite module enabled. Contact tech support to get it enabled
    • Your webhosting uses software different from Apache webserver. It requires to convert rewrite rules located in amember/.htaccess file into the webserver native format. Contact webhosting tech for details.
    You may continue aMember installation, but aMember will not work correctly until mod_rewrite issues are resolved.

    i can confirm its on


    root@ns381760:~# sudo a2enmod rewrite
    Module rewrite already enabled

    Download and run my requirements checker just to be sure.

    Perhaps .htaccess rewrite is not available even if the module is enable, this can be done in the main apache config.

    something my end mate.
    anyways after a reinstall of the vps, i have got to the page telling me mod_rewrite not enable, i spent 3 hours last night rying all guides and got no where
    i stick you file in root

    everhing is green tick apart from
    so i did this:

    sudo apt-get install php5-curl
    sudo service apache2 restart

    refreshed all green ticks and gone back to install to the mod write error, so of course again googled mod rewrite....

    Silly question did you apply the .htaccess patch mentioned on this forum post?

    Also I have updated my requirements checker, it should now detect whether mod rewrite is active as far as PHP is concerned, download here.

    im after a custom login page, that would remove all the blue bar amember bits, i dont know to embed with word press or not, as i have only used wp about 6 years ago and later moved to a ipb board

    something like

    [​IMG]

    with maybe a space or two for banners and hidden counter

    I will have nothing to do with IPB, as far as your login design it as ordinary html/css and I could probably implement it using the theme system.
