Solved: 10 Years, 8 Months, 2 Weeks ago Theme crash after CHmod
Solved: 10 Years, 8 Months, 2 Weeks ago
Previously, when I changed CHmods in inc/settings.php and inc/config.php according to the AdminCP, my theme would crash.

Using MyBB 1.6.0, I decided to reinstall it, and leave the chmods as they are, and everything worked perfectly fine.

Yet, when I upgraded to 1.6.4, it 'forced' me to Chmod inc/settings.php to writable, so I changed it from 444 to 644. Upgrade went successfully, theme crashed.

I tried chmodding it back, no luck.
I've browsed other threads; no luck( No .htaccess, no chmods in cache folder are wrong) everything seems perfect. Reinstalled theme, no luck.

My Site is:

I would appreciate any help, thanks.

Edit: I can't get access to the adminCP anymore. I used to, even after the crash.

Your CSS is pointing to ""... which does not exist

Can't access adminCP, probably because of the same issue. So the root link can't be changed.
Is there a way to change it, in the database, for example?

In mybb_templates, yes.

The theme is not 'crashed', it's just loading a URL that doesn't exist. Your settings.php file should never be set to 444, I don't know why you have it set to that, that would mean no settings you change would ever have any effect. As mentioned above, the base URL of the CSS and javascript URLs, and in fact all URLs on the site including the link to the ACP, is which is neither of the two URLs you said you use so I'm not sure where this URL has even come from. Your cookie settings are wrong too. Also, mybb_templates has nothing to do with this in any whatsoever. You need to edit settings.php, change the cookie domain to and change the Board URL to and then save the file. The forum will now be fixed, you will now be able to log in to the ACP, where you must change these settings again in the ACP. Also keep settings.php set to 666 and don't change it to anything else.

Edit: I made the changes myself after reading your PMs (for future reference, there's little point in PMing me for support when I'm offline as I won't see it very quickly and I check threads in the forum first anyway). I had to change the settings to work with because is just loading in an iframe, and the site isn't going to work like this. I've CHMODd settings.php to 666, so now log in to the ACP and change your Cookie Domain to and your Board URL to You'll probably find people won't be able to log in but that's because your site is being loaded in an iframe which isn't something we can fix for you.
