I'm developing a website with some medium-level customisation, with out-of-the-box modules included. At some point in the development stage the homepage has gone AWOL. I am getting a 404 Page Not Found error page when I try to visit the root directory and /home pages.

Now it gets weird.

If I append /?flush (with or without the =1 or =all variable) the homepage works. If I empty the silverstripe-cache folder, it works once. If I delete /index.php file it works once, then it breaks. If I upload the /index.php file it works once, then it breaks.

I have tried shifting to a different host, database repairs, moving directories, dropping a fresh install on top all without luck. Any tips would be extremely well received.

What type of server are you setting it up on? Got any caching setup like xcache, apc?
