    A few questions?

    1. What platform are you using to run FUEL (MAC, Unix, Windows XAMPP, WAMP)?
    2. Did you create a subfolder on your web server to install FUEL or does it exist at your server's web root directory?
    3. What URL did you use to try and access the site?

    i use easyphp on Windows.

    I've create a subfolder name
    than i have add a virtualhost (127:0:0:5 - on my apache that point to www/
    Than in my hosts file i have set the redirect to 127:0:0:5 for

    I use always these settings, without problems.

    I have notice that if i rename the file /fuel/application/config/MY_fuel.php to fuel.php i see the custom 404 error page.

    Thank you

    Couple more questions:
    1. What is the URI path that you are using to see that error (is it just the homepage?)
    2. Have you been able to get CodeIgniter projects to work on your server before (
    3. Do you have .htaccess and mod_rewrite enabled for your Apache server

    Are you using the 0.90 version or the 0.91 version on GitHub? The 0.91 version uses Modular Separation and CI 2.0. The error you are seeing could be happening around line 88 in the fuel/application/libraries/MY_Config.php file in version 0.90 which uses Matchbox to create it's module folders. I'd be curious if you have the same problem with version 0.91:

    I'm not sure why you'd be getting that error message at the moment but narrowing down which version may help.

    With 0.91 version works!

    Thank you for your support :)

    OK... good to know.

    I made a change to the 0.9 version that may fix that issue. I basically explicitly state where to find the FUEL config file. I changed line 34 in the fuel/module/fuel/libraries/Fuel_base_controller.php to the following:
    $this->load->module_config(FUEL_FOLDER, 'fuel', TRUE);
    Not sure why it was an issue for you though.
