    Bad HTTP_REFERER error.

    Well im using fluxbb forum files at the moment and i keep getting this message when im trying to editing options through administration panel.

    Code:
    Bad HTTP_REFERER. If you have moved these forums from one location to another or switched domains, you need to update the Base URL manually in the database (look for o_base_url in the config table) and then clear the cache by deleting all .php files in the /cache directory.
    Ive followed steps to manually edit the base_url in the db, config.

    Also to delete every .php in the /cache directory

    Im using wamp and my testing it on http://localhost

    Ive set my base_url to ''http://localhost''

    My forum files are in C:\wamp\www\forum

    Cache C:\wamp\www\forum\cache

    If anyone has any pointers, would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    http://localhost or http://localhost/forum? The o_base_url entry has to point to the forum base directory, not the site root directory.

    Ask on the FluxBB forums. They don't bite. For that message though, about the only cause is the base_url being incorrect, (unless you have disabled sending the referrer in your browser).
