I have come back to this as got sidelined on other things for ages. So please find my details below, with these details i get the following error still:
500 Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, email@example.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
RewriteEngine On RewriteRule (.*?)/(.*?)/(.*?)$ exp/index.php?page=$1&action=$2&id=$3
Now if I comment out all except the 'RewriteEngine On'
RewriteEngine On #RewriteRule (.*?)/(.*?)/(.*?)$ #exp/index.php?page=$1&action=$2&id=$3
my /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file details are below:
<Directory /> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymlinks AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> <Directory "/Library/WebServer/Documents/"> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymlinks AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
This might or might not but just noticed that if I list my directories by just going to localhost then the folder I am using is not visible??? within the list of other folders
So to the life of me do not know whats going on.
