.htaccess panel error 500 & href problem with 'Ü'

Hi guys I got two problems.
First of all the .htaccess file. I don’t know, what I’m doing wrong but the panel only works locally. On a server I get Error 500. The URL is https://main-site.de/juwelier/.

# Kirby .htaccess

# rewrite rules
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

# enable awesome urls. i.e.:
# http://yourdomain.com/about-us/team
RewriteEngine on

# make sure to set the RewriteBase correctly
# if you are running the site in a subfolder.
# Otherwise links or the entire site will break.
# If your homepage is http://yourdomain.com/mysite
# Set the RewriteBase to:
RewriteBase /juwelier

# In some enviroments it's necessary to
# set the RewriteBase to:
#RewriteBase /

# block text files in the content folder from being accessed directly
RewriteRule ^content/(.*)\.(txt|md|mdown)$ index.php [L]

# block all files in the site folder from being accessed directly
# except for requests to plugin assets files
#RewriteRule ^assets/plugins/([a-zA-Z0-9\.\-_%=]+)/(.*)$ site/plugins/$1/assets/$2 [L,N]
#RewriteCond $1 !^plugins/[a-zA-Z0-9\.\-_%=]+/assets/.*
RewriteRule ^site/(.*) index.php [L]

# block direct access to kirby and the panel sources
RewriteRule ^(kirby|panel\/app|panel\/tests)/(.*) index.php [L]

# make panel links work
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^panel/(.*) panel/index.php [L]

# make site links work
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php [L]


# Additional recommended values
# Remove comments for those you want to use.
# AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
# php_flag short_open_tag on

The other problem is:
It is a onepager, so I’m using a scroll-to navigation. One site is called ‘Über uns’, so the scroll to doesnt work because of the ‘Ü’. (I’m convinced, but not sure).

<li><a href="#<?= $item->title() ?>" uk-scroll><?= $item->title()->html() ?></a></li>

This is how I my menu entry looks like. It works for all the other menu entries.

These are 2 different things.

Concerning the first: please check minimum requirements (there’s a typo there: minimum php version is 5.6), and check your server logs to see what the error 500 is about.

As for the second: can you use $item->uid(), or str::slug($item->title()) for both the id and href? This way you shouldn’t have encoding issues.

Thanks for your answer.
The second problem is solved. Thank you for that!


worked perfect.

As for the first one:
I checked the error logs and it says my PHP version is too old, but how does this make any sense, because on the main domain there is already a working kirby instance. The panel at the main site works perfectly fine. I will try updating the php version anyway, but first I have to find out how, since it’s not my webspace and I don’t know where it’s hosted.

It means some parts will be ok, others need the latest PHP version. Just make sure you use a supported PHP version. Whilst you’re looking at upgrading, please upgrade to Version 7 (or newer) for faster PHP :wink:
