  • [CMS] mod rewrite and CMS

    I'm having trouble getting the mod rewrite to work properly on a clean 4.2 suite install, but only for the CMS (articles) section.

    vb is installed in the /forum/ directory.
    Currently, there is nothing in the root directory, but I'd like to have the CMS at the root.
    All the links (forum, what's new, usercp, blogs, etc...) work fine w/ the mod rewrite. However, it is only the Articles (or CMS) that doesn't work, and it returns a 404 page not found error. The url that it goes to is

    Did I do something wrong?

    I did edit the sample .htaccess by uncommenting 2 lines (but am not sure if I should have):

    # If you are having problems or are using VirtualDocumentRoot, uncomment this line and set it to your forum component directory.
    RewriteBase /forum/

    # If you are having problems with the rewrite from content/ to content.php, uncomment this line to turn MultiViews off.
    Options -MultiViews

widgetinstance 262 (Related Topics) skipped due to lack of content & hide_module_if_empty option.
