After successfully installing and configuring silverstripe 2.4.4, I am able to successfully log into the CMS and edit the site. After a day goes by, I lose access to the admin or dev because the Security loops back on itself and sends me to this URL

Please note the following had been attempted, empty all cache files, re-install silverstripe, create a new DB, there are no modifications to the site files a this point. I am using the stock .htaccess, and I have removed the include paths to any pearl, pear scripts that could be causing issues.

I am also not getting a silverstripe 404 page, I get a general browser 404 error.

when looking at the source code generated, the loginForm "action" is set to ="Security/LoginForm" so to avoid the error I have to add a "/"before the "Security" since the url is currently "" the browser is treating "Security" as a directory and appending "Security" to that instead of to the base url?

This is normally the issue when your template does not contain a base tag. You might want to check the contains a <% base_tag %> after the <html>.
