I downloaded about 7 lite version products from this site. 5 install fine and seem to be working properly. I can't get vbsignature, vbdonate or forumon to install. I get:

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

AJAX threads, forum live feed, info panels, arcade, shout and notification all installed and are working.

Are you able to access your server's error log (usually located in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log though YMMV) and see if that holds any additional details?

I tried again to import the product xml for the signature script. This is the error log generated at the time I got the 404 Bad Request. I tried to import it at 21:24 to generate fresh error codes.

Which of those IPs is yours?

For some reason, your forum seems to believe it exists in /home/zfunboyz/public_html/forums.

All I know is, it's entirely unrelated to this mod since our mod doesn't make any assumptions on the installation directories.

Have you configured the forumpath setting in the config.php file incorrectly by accident? Normally it doesn't need to be configured at all.

I'm not sure where it exists. When I read the instructions on installing the vbulletin and from the web host I thought I was supposed to upload vbulletin scripts to /public_html and then run the install.php script. I ran the script and it populated apparently exact copies in /public_html and www. All the mods I've installed I ftp'ed to public_html and looking at the directories now the /public_html and www contain the exact same files, mod files and all.

The lines for the forum location from config.php:

// ******** FULL PATH TO FORUMS DIRECTORY ******
// On a few systems it may be necessary to input the full path to your forums directory
// for vBulletin to function normally. You can ignore this setting unless vBulletin
// tells you to fill this in. Do not include a trailing slash!
// Example Unix:
// $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '/home/users/public_html/forums';
// Example Win32:
// $config['Misc']['forumpath'] = 'c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\vb3';
$config['Misc']['forumpath'] = '';

The vbulletin seems to work right without errors while running. As I had said, vbshout, notification and a couple other of your mods installed and run without a hitch. vbdonate, vbsignature and forumon won't import the product file. When vbdonate wouldn't install I found a lesser donate script and it installed and runs.

I went into the admincp and did some checking. I found that in a couple of instances the forum url was indicated at http://zfunboyz.com instead of http://www.zfunboyz.com. I think this was in two or three places. I changed it and everything that was installed seems to still work fine. I'll try to install the product xml for the donate later today (its 10:00 and I'm at work) and see what happens.

If you want, I can try to get the mods installed for you. If you PM me with an FTP and AdminCP account I can see if there's some form of debug output I can add that reveals some added information :)
