XF 1.3 Friendly URLS


this is most likely a bit of configuration that I am missing, but when I enable Friendly URLS I get the error 'Not found' on my forum, I have checked if the module is loaded and it appears to be, bellow is my .httaccess file

# Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
# cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
# SecFilterEngine Off
# SecFilterScanPOST Off

ErrorDocument 401 default
ErrorDocument 403 default
ErrorDocument 404 default
ErrorDocument 500 default

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

# If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
# line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
# of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
#RewriteBase /xenforo

# This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
#RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

thank you!

If you're sure the .htaccess is in place correctly, then:
  1. mod_rewrite may be missing from Apache (likely not the case here)
  2. AllowOverride may not be specified at the VHost/httpd.conf level (probably the case).
  3. You may need to uncomment and use the RewriteBase line.
Thank you very much.

I changed 'AllowOverride none' to 'AllowOverride All' and uncommented 'RewriteBase line' now all is fine thank you!
