ModphpBB3 doesn't come with that file as it's currently only a stand alone forum and not a portal. It sounds like you are using it on an old forum where a portal was once installed and you still have the tables in database.

If you are looking to make it a portal, clear all of the older portal files and tables, install and then add a portal onto it.

Sewell is right cisco, there isn't a file of that name in modphpbb3, so you must still have reference to an earlier phpBB portal installation on your server. Delete all the server files excluding the config.php and re-upload the files again.

If you originally overwrote the phpBB files with the changed ModphpBB3 files, it still would have left the old files on the server that were not in the ModphpBB3 install. Though, it sounds to me that you still have an older version of an edited file on the server and it is still looking for the portal.php file.

Did you ever at any point have a portal installed either within the same database or within that 'test' folder on the domain?

By ftp delete everthing in cache folder other than .htaccess.

Solved it, you have a portal in you domain root and it's conflicting with the phpBB in another directory. This is listed on your .htaccess for your root.

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^layerba.info$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.layerba.info$
RewriteRule ^/?$ "http\:\/\/layerba\.info\/portal\.php" [R=301,L]
