  • Hello,

    I'm strugging to get FURLs working in a local installation of ModX Revolution 2.6.1 using xampp. It keeps redirecting to index.php rather than the appropriate page. I've done these steps so far:


    • Turned on FURL in the manager.
    • Renamed htaccess to .htaccess in the root folder..
    • Changed RewriteBase to the root folder.
    • Uncommented rewrite_module modules/mod.rewrite.so in http.conf.

    Any ideas?

    - Keith
    • If you're using a subfolder in htdocs then make sure your rewrite base reflects this.

      RewriteBase /subfolder/

      • Thanks. It was sending me to index when it ran into an error. My problem was not appending .html. If I change the documents to containers, they work without the html, but I'm not sure whether that's best practice.
        • Ah ok smiley

          If you go to content types in your manager (manager/?a=system/contenttype) and just remove the .html extension value then they'll work without needing to stick the extension on the end of the url.
