Hey guys

I have recently moved my myBB forum over to a new server. I took care to back up the directory and database and transfer it all over and it seemed to have worked apart from now all link headers from forums and threads are not found.

I'm guessing it is either to do with an incorrect transfer or my .htaccess file.

I now have a vps (not sure if mod-rewrite is available). I also have the google SEO plugin installed with the error "Your host does not seem to support mbstring. This may cause problems with UTF-8." not sure if that plays a part in this.

My .htaccess content:
RewriteEngine on

# Some hosts require RewriteBase to make RewriteRules work.
RewriteBase /forums/

# Google SEO workaround for search.php highlights:
# Make this rule the first rewrite rule in your .htaccess!
RewriteRule ^([^&]*)&(.*)$$1?$2 [L,QSA,R=301]

# Google SEO 404:
ErrorDocument 404 /forums/misc.php?google_seo_error=404

# Google SEO workaround for search.php highlights:

# Google SEO Sitemap:
RewriteRule ^sitemap\-([^./]+)\.xml$ misc.php?google_seo_sitemap=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Forums:
RewriteRule ^Forum\-([^./]+)$ forumdisplay.php?google_seo_forum=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Threads:

# Google SEO URL Announcements:

# Google SEO URL Users:

# Google SEO URL Calendars:

# Google SEO URL Events:
