Full Version: temp.htaccess & fancy urls
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I could use some help getting Fancy URLs to work. I've installed the latest version of GS on my server and it works properly when Fancy URLs are disabled. Website Health Check shows no problems. Also, the htaccess file shows up as temp.htaccess. I've read other posts about renaming the temp file back to htaccess but only to find it causes other problems and broken links. How can I remedy this problem simply? FYI, my hosting company does support mod_rewrite.

I would appreciate any help as quickly as possible as I'm in a crunch! Thanks so much!
you will need to manually edit and rename the htaccess file.

replace the root with "/" and rename to .htaccess

Thank you for the quick response. I edited the temp.htaccess file as you instructed, saved it as ht.access and uploaded it via FTP replacing the temp file. However, it still does not work. When clicking on navigation, pages can't be found. What is the next step in solving this?

Thanks again.

With a dot in front – .htaccess?

It's the little things that trip me up! Problem solved. Thanks to all for the help. I really like GS and appreciate the support provided by the Forum. Kudos!
heh yeah . prefix means hidden or system it also protects the file as system, .htaccess
but ultimatley it depends on your apache conf as you or host can specify other names.
