ok have a look at my .htaccess :-



# Comment the following line (add '#' at the beginning)
# to disable mod_rewrite functions.
# Please note: you still need to disable the hack in
# the vBSEO control panel to stop url rewrites.
RewriteEngine On

# Some servers require the Rewritebase directive to be
# enabled (remove '#' at the beginning to activate)
# Please note: when enabled, you must include the path
# to your root vB folder (i.e. RewriteBase /forums/)
#RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.pdaapps\.org
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.pdaapps.org/$1 [L,R=301]

seems to be working but i am not sure about what this vbseo rule in .htaccess does :(



RewriteRule ^((archive/)?(.*\.php(/.*)?))$ vbseo.php [L,QSA]

RewriteRule ^(.+)$ vbseo.php [L,QSA]

i asked about above rules at vbseo forum instead of explaining its purpose vbseo staff is recommending to remove vbet , i hope michal will do shed some light here :)

vBET
20-07-10, 15:41
Yes - they are simply working against theirs clients best business.

so michal what is the use of these rules, is it safe to remove them ?

vBET

Those are vBSEO rules which redirects all request to their front controller. When you are using vBET you can remove those rules, because vBET uses it's own front controller (vbenterprisetranslator_seo.php) and then redirects control internally to vbseo.php
