I have this URL rewrite rule in my .htaccess

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^home$ home.php

but when I try to reach awatag.com/home I get a 404 error.

This rule worked perfectly before moving the domain to GoDaddy.

In this very case you could get away with enabling Options All +MultiViews instead. –  mario May 26 '11 at 17:19

Check your old apache config against your new apache config. It might be something as simple as not having mod_rewrite configured on your new server.

Try prefixing the redirect path with a leading slash:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^home$ /home.php [L]

RewriteRule ^home$ /home.php doesn't work :( –  Aegidius May 26 '11 at 18:21

Adding

RewriteBase /

seems to help some people.
