The site seems to draw the correct links but its not redirecting me to the correct view.

The same code works fine on the old server here http://ruse.systemio.net/q&a/. The new server is here http://www.rusereplays.com/q&a/

The problem I'm having is if you click a link on that page to a question it rewrites the link and redirects to the site, but for the new server it seems to just redirect to index.php.

This is my .htaccess I'm using on both servers

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [QSA,L]

ErrorDocument 404 /index.php

This is the phpinfo for the two servers

Anyone having a suggestion on how to fix this or too help me find a solution to my problem?

    No.. it is fine here! If it needs to be move then it would rather be serverfault.

  • Are you sure you have the mod_rewrite module enabled on the new server?

Is AllowOverride All set in your httpd.conf?

(If not, your mod_rewrite directives will be ignored unless they are specified under a Directory section in the httpd.conf file or your site's conf file)

See the Apache Core documentation - you'll want to make sure that AllowOverride and AccessFileName match your old server's setup.
