Hi there,

I am using Silverstripe 2.4.7 and have just started using WHMCS.

I have a problem however that if I have a link to WHMCS, silverstripe comes up with page not found.

For example, I have a client area. (fake url etc used for demo purposes as my site is underconstruction)

My link is http://www.fakedomain.tld/clientarea/

Sivlverstripe displays page not found.

But if I enter in http://www.fakedomain.tld/clientarea/index.php - it will go to WHMCS.

How do I stop Silverstripe from requiring the index.php part?

I eagerly look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

This is the rewriting rules in .htaccess

the silverstripe rule is to redirect all URLs to main.php, except a specific php file or image

Read up on mod_rewrite ( and then you can add exceptions to the silverstripe rule for your required areas

Hi thank you for pointing me in the right direction. It is all gobbly gook to me. So I will just make sure I type in the full url to where I need my visitors to go for now as that seems easiest for me.
