Are you sure your RewriteRules are right? I've had a simular problem and I noticed that I had this RewriteRule in my .htaccess:
- Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^(.*)/?$ index.php?page=$1 [L]
Maybe you can post your defined RewriteRules here, so that someone can see if there could be something wrong there.
If there is nothing wrong in the .htaccess in mywebsite.com/, then another possibility is that there is a strange RewriteRule in an other .htaccess-file in a higher level directory. For example when you had put 'mywebsite.com' into /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/websites/, then the folder 'websites' could also contain a .htaccess-file.
