Question

Default Index file is not loading

Hi All, I have just started my instance and have a basic problem. The default index.php is not loading in one of my directory - unless I put a backslash manually. The directory is - http://4brownbag.com/lamp

The htaccess file in the directory says the following

DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
ErrorDocument 404 "[404 error] If you're seeing this error after install, check$

Options +FollowSymLinks
Options -Multiviews

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9-]+)$ $1.php [L]

I have gone through various articles to resolve and yet got nothing. Will appreciate any solution to this as the issue is exposing the installation terribly.

Good to hear from you and My root directory is - /var/www/html/ All working well under this directory and i can access this by putting up www.4brownbag.com. However

/var/www/html/lamp - this directory is giving me the tough time. This i want to access like this - http://4brownbag.com/lamp

Eagerly waiting for any solution or help while I am still looking around like anything :)

Cheers and Regards

what is your root directory? …and what directory is the index.php in?
