404 when I try to flush the cache

Today I started using version control software with my CMS and now have an odd error. I checked out a working copy of my code and put it in a new folder on MAMP away from the original installation. I made sure that the entire silverstripe folder was present and correct, modules, etc etc, but when I try to flush the cache I get a 404 error. The old installation is fine and the CMS is working fine in this one too, it's just when I try to build it, etc that it all goes wrong.

I'd appreciate any advice.


P.S. I'm using SilverStripe 2.4.7 and SVN as my version control.

Turned out to be a problem with the .htaccess file. It wasn't copied across properly and also ended up in the wrong place. All sorted now.
