404 Error when installing with mod_rewrite installed and Rewritebase / in .htaccess
  • I am getting a 404 page when trying to go to install.

    You can see it here on a clean install of Wordpress/Thesis:

    I have verified that mod_rewrite is installed and active as you can see in this screenshot—_ubuntu@ip-10-191-54-169__~_—_ssh_—_80×24-20121212-163122.jpg

    I have ensured the RewriteBase / is in the .htaccess file at root and I have also tried placing it in /sendy/.htaccess as well as RewriteBase /sendy

    No joy!

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi @vincentpolisi thanks for the details. Do you have Wordpress installed one directory above Sendy? If so, I suspect Sendy's .htaccess file may be conflicting with Wordpress's .htaccess. I have experience with some other users with a similar issue.

    Try installing it on a sub domain to see if it works?


  • ***** DISREGARD ******(see following post explaining incorrect directory in /includes/config.php)

    Ben, thank you for responding.

    Deleted /sendy from

    Created new subdomain of

    Did a clean install of Sendy to

    Tried it with a folder named /sendy and without at root

    Presently all the files are sitting in the root of with the only .htaccess file being Sendy's

    It is still taking me to the same 404 page at

    The subdomain is working because it is serving up a test image at:

    Need some help here, Hoss.
  • Ben, disregard previous post. My mistake. When I changed it to the subdomain of, I initially forgot to change the Sendy installation directory in /includes/config.php to so it was defaulting to the prior install location. I have it setup and have logged in. Thank you.
