Hi all,
We are running a silverstripe site for a small motorclub: http://www.xtsr500.nl

The users would like to run a different forum, other than the default Silverstripe forum.

I managed to install PHPbb in a subdir below the root of the website and access that through a subdomain:

http://forums.xtsr500.nl

However, every time I go to this URL I get the following error message:

====
Not Found

The requested URL /home/xxx/domains/domain.nl/public_html/sapphire/main.php was not found on this server.
====

If I go to http://forums.xtsr500.nl/index.php I get no error message.

I found out that this is due to some rewrite rules in the .htaccess file in the root of the website:

RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

How do I need to change the .htaccess to get the URL http://forums.xtsr500.nl working?

Many thanks in advance!

Regards,
Rene
