problem with pretty urls

Permalink 3 users found helpful
I tried enabling pretty urls, copied the text to my .htaccess, but it didn't work. So I removed the .htaccess, but now I can't get anywhere in the admin panel because it still thinks I'm using pretty urls. I get the toolbar at the top, but when I click on dashboard, it won't go there, it's trying to go to mysite.com/dashboard, which doesn't work since the urlrewriting isn't working. I tried inserting index.php into the url but still can't get to the dashboard.

Please help!.. thanks

in your config table, select the row where cfKey is URL_REWRITING, here you can change the cfValue value from 1 to 0

is something wrong with the .htaccess directive? I've confirmed that apache is configured for .htaccess files and mod_rewrite is on.

are the "cut and paste" contents correct?:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]
</IfModule>

I removed the <IfModule> </IfModule> tags and that worked for me.

<ifModule> is working fine for me, so removing them did nothing.

Currently seeking help from my hosting provider on why their mod-rewrite is not working.

Removing the <IfModule> </IfModule> tags worked for me as well.

Disregard last post.

Thanks for all the suggestions, though I think it must be my hosting provider and the actual mod_rewrite module not working as it should...

can someone post the httpd.conf file of an installation with pretty URLs working?

I'd like to compare it to a non-working installation and see if i can't come up with a solution.

Thanks to Jereme, who worked through this with me at #concrete5 on efnet.

If you are running concrete5 from a subdirectory, you need to adjust the line:

RewriteBase /

to

Rewritebase /path_to_c5/

In addition to the RewriteBase being set correctly, I also had to slightly modify the rule to get things to work on my server.

RewriteBase /devsite2/

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

# Original Rule (did not work for me)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

# Modified Rule (works for me)
RewriteRule ^devsite2/(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

This really helped me, thx.

Thanks. I was in a subdirectory, and changing the rewriteBase line did the trick!...
Now that I have this working, I will start moving my sites over!
