Turned on URL rewriting, now 404 errors

Post by Mustillo » Mon Jun 17, 2013 8:16 am

Hello Guys,

I decided to remove the ugly URL clutter that I was having example (joshmustillo.com/index.php/about) to (joshmustillo.com/about), but it wasn't as simple as I thought. When I did turn on URL rewriting and go to my About page I get a 404 error.

I have changed htaccess.txt to htaccess

I did also change web.config.txt to web.config, still no difference?

Thank You,
