    Hi I just did a clean install of v2.0. Everything seemed to installed fine however after I created a category , when i click on the new category i just created I get:

    "Not Found
    The requested URL /nameofmysite/dir/index.php was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.nameofmysite.com Port 80"

    My browers url has:

    It tried going there manually and get the same message

    I then tried to create a test listing but that did not help it. i tried creatign other categories but would not work



    nameofmysite is just psuedo

    I found the solution

    Solution was located here:


    "On the other hand, if you installed the script into some folder you have to add the following directive:

    RewriteBase /directory/

    Where /directory/ is the folder where you installed the script. This is just an example and your directory may differ so you have to replace it with your actualy folder name. "

    One thing to point out is that the server info page didn't have anyting about mod_rewrite, so i'm not sure it it was under any other name.

    How ever it must be present inorder for it to work.
