Can anyone tell me what I may of done wrong when re-loading my site, when I try to load some content (namely: SWF files) it does not appear.

Many thanks

it is a mod_rewrite issue...

On my WAMP I click the icon in the system tray, click Apache, click Apache Modules, (scroll a bit) and check rewite_module.

that should sort it

Thanks Swaiba
I am unsure how to change this - (am prob being a bit dense) am using MAMP "Activate/deactivate included Apache Modules" is only possible in MAMP PRO. Have checked the .htaccess file but am unsure what I should be looking for...

Sorry again for my lack of knowledge...
