I am having some problems getting rewriting working (Apache really hates me with this - I have had so many problems on hosted accounts aswell!).
Anyway - I have uncommented the Loadmodule directive and verified it is loaded using phinfo(). I have also changed AllowOverride to All.
I am trying a really basic rewrite to transform pretty urls into a dynamic urls like so:
RewriteRule ^/products$ ^/content.php
RewriteRule ^/sn2/products/([0-9]+)$ ^/content.php?id=$1
content.php is in the same folder as the .htaccess file, sn2 is a folder directly under apache root.
I get a 404 error when using an internet browser to navigate to http://localhost/sn2/products/9
Looking in the error log it says:
[Fri Dec 01 22:49:23 2006] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: E:/xampplite/htdocs/sn2/products
Any ideas? Or am i cursed forever?
Cheers - Tom
