Hello all,

My phpBB forum is on a subdomain of an addon domain:

My main domain:
The addon:
The subdomain

My Coppermine gallery is in a directory in the addon:

Here's what I've entered in step 2 of the Bridge Wizard:

URL of the bridge app:
Relative path to your bridge app's config file: ../forum/
Cookie prefix: phpbb3_huxzj

Everything seems to run well, all of the above details are accepted and I continue to the end of the wizard. When I try to visit the gallery at the address:

I get redirected tho this address:

This results in a 403 and a 404 error:


You don't have permission to access /ucp.php on this server.

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

I tlooks like it's trying to find the UCP on phpBB, but that's about all I can guess. Obviously, I'm not doing something right here and if any of you guys could help me out then that would be great.

The bridge is currently disabled so that you can login using the test account with the following credentials:
Username: test user
Password: test

Just to update:

I did it and more details can be found here on the phpBB forums.

Basically I moved the forum out of the subdomain and into a directory in the site's root.

Hope this helps somebody out.
