Hey Tormond,

Thanks for the quick response. I tried your approach but it broke all my
existing wiki links. No biggie as it is a new installation. I re-installed
from scratch being careful to keep the base url clean and that url_rewrite
is enabled, but now I am getting a '404 Not Found Error' when I go to '

I am a bit confused as I tried a clean install twice now with the same
results both times. (All tests pass but the page gives me a 404 error)

Here is a screenshot of my config: Initial
And here is my wikka.config.php<http://pastie.textmate.org/private/w3e5ncqfhlvwvt6ngzv3g>

I'm probably missing something simple, but not sure where to start.

> Hi Alok,

> 2) Try removing "wikka.php?wakka=" from the end of base_url in
> wikka.config.php, and then making sure that rewrite_mode is set to 1
> in the same file, and that .htaccess in the same folder has
> RewriteEngine On. I am confident that these are set, as I couldn't
> reproduce it otherwise.
> 3) ... (Reload http://wiki.arkalumen.com)
> 4) Profit!
> Hope this helps,
