    Check .htaccess?
  • edited 4:25AM
    This is my .htaccess

    Options +FollowSymLinks

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny From All

    # Allow asset folders through
    RewriteRule ^(fuel/modules/(.+)?/assets/(.+)) - [L]

    # Protect application and system files from being viewed
    RewriteRule ^(fuel/install/.+|fuel/crons/.+|fuel/data_backup/.+|fuel/codeigniter/.+|fuel/modules/.+|fuel/application/.+) - [F,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule .* index.php?/$0 [L]

    # Prevents access to dot files (.git, .htaccess) - security.
    RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} -f
    RewriteRule "(^|/)\." - [F]

    Options -Indexes

    There are normally 2 things to check with .htaccess:

    1. Try one of the following:
    RewriteRule .* index.php?/$0 [L]
    OR without the "?"
    RewriteRule .* index.php/$0 [L]

    2. If FUEL is in a subfolder on your webserver, change the RewriteBase to include that folder:
    RewriteBase /myfolder/
