The domain moved to my control a week or so ago.

It works fine for me.

What is the exact address your entering?

http://bx16valve.co.uk forwards to http://bx16valve.co.uk/phpBB3/ and works okay

Likewise
http://www.bx16valve.co.uk/ forwards to http://www.bx16valve.co.uk/phpbb3 and works okay

But they are HTACCESS redirected to http://www.bx16v.co.uk

If we can figure out what's happening I'd be grateful for your input as you wont be the only one stuck on the outside.

Oh, weird, if i go to

http://www.bx16valve.com/

and click the link to the forum i end up at a totally different page.

Looks like the original hosts have screwed up the DNS somewhere.

Using my usual shortcut: http://www.bx16valve.co.uk/phpBB3/login.php? I end up directly at the hosts page (not the site)

Using www.bx16valve.co.uk I get to the site.

Never happened before...

Hmmm, login.php has never existed in PHPBB3 as best i know, i guess there is/was some legacy .htaccess that has been deleted.

Well hopefully your old link will work okay now!

Just tried it and it went to an Error 404 page first with Vanny's ADMIN email on it. Then it refreshed on to the site all by itself while I was reading the Error page.

The other route (http://www.bx16v.co.uk) goes straight there and login works fine too. :D

Ah good, so that worked.

I tried to automagically make it redirect requests to 'forum' to the new 'phpbb3' but broke it, to be honest i was getting stressed and making more and more mistakes.

The Error redirection is a cheap and dirty fix, but at least it should stop people getting dropped into the sedo page, and from W2G it seems to work.
