Much like the title of the thread says. I accidentally deleted this file and was wondering if anyone could chime in and help me replace this file. I have been searching and havent found anything related to replacing this if it was accidentally deleted.

Thanks!

You could do a reintall and get it generated.

Here is the (normal) content:

### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
<Files *.ss>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Files>

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /silverstripe

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif$)|(\.jpg$)|(\.png$)|(\.css$)|(\.js$)

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
</IfModule>
### SILVERSTRIPE END ###

Of course RewriteBase /silverstripe has to be replaced by the place your install is.

How would I go about reinstalling silverstripe?

I used the installer offered from my webhosting company godadddy.com

Then you should use the code i put above and save it in the .htaccess file and put it on your server.

Probably you need to use

RewriteBase /

instead of

RewriteBase /silverstripe

Bart,

Thank you! You just saved me a whole lot of grief. I was afraid I would have to reinstall everything again!

I guess this is what happens when newbies go out making their own websites.
