Hi All,

Just moved a site as the prev hosting company went into administration. Now, I've got the .htaccess sorted for the sub pages, but the main page isn't showing. just shows the standard 1and1 page and all the other sublinks work 100%

Anyone got any ideas as to why this is happening?

My .htaccess file looks like:

### SILVERSTRIPE Start ###
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} sssite$
RewriteRule (.*) $1/ [L]

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

<Files *.ss>

Order deny,allow

<Files web.config>

ErrorDocument 500 /assets/error-500.html
RedirectMatch 403 /silverstripe-cache(/|$)

Hi Mat,

It looks fine to me... maybe try in private browsing mode to ensure it's not served from the cache.
