HTACCESS directory rewrite question


Well-known member
I spotted something in the htaccess file used for friendly URL's a while ago, just want to get some clarification about something listed in it that's bugged me since.

This line used below in it:

#RewriteBase /xenforo
Should it not include a trailing slash at the end of "/xenforo/" if your running the forum from a directory located in the ROOT and you remove the "#" from that line. And with the htaccess file included in the forum directory also? Just wondering if there's a specific reason why you don't include a trailing slash like most other sites telling you how to use rewrites show you one is added.

#RewriteBase /
#RewriteBase /xenforo/
