when i add the to my htaccess it gives me a 403 error and i have no idea why
thats weird because a 403 error is a forbidden error.
what is the link to the site?
im trying it on my local server, using localhost/whatever as the test
Have you got mod_rewrite?
lol, good point i probably dont. how would i know this?
Well unless you build it yourself or got a non-standard build it's installed but not enabled (presumably for efficiancy). My advice to you it to have a look at http://www.tutorio.com/tutorial/enable-mod-rewrite-on-apache .
I think that that is a better one
thanks the first tutorial got it working
