ExpressionEngine: Update from 1.6.3. to 1.6.4. problems

1 Sep 2008

Posted in: ExpressionEngine Tutorials

After the last night update I made, I noticed that something messed up my code in the 'title' and 'description' head tag. First I worried because you didn't know what else could be messed up. The problem appeared in the title only and on a single page in this form:

I found several solutions, but the one I used was this one:

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="your_weblog" limit="1" rdf="off" dynamic="on"}{title}{/exp:weblog:entries}

Removing index.php from URLs for better SEO optimization, htaccess, PHP 5.2.6 and ExpressionEngine

Finally my site runs at PHP5, MySql 5. As I announced few months ago, but that happened few days ago. We can feel a little speed up, but besides that, and of course new PHP5 features, there is all like before.

As there is always "but", I experienced some little headache problems. My rewrite rule for removing index.php from URL just stopped working. In that moment I didn’t knew that the update already happened. I was using tutorial from the wiki page of ExpressionEngine

Old rewrite rule:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

If you had un update of php version to 5.2.6 like me, you can try this solution. This worked for me:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

NOTE: The blue question mark after index.php. This is working on HostGator servers, maybe for some strange reason, is not working on your site/server.
