This is the first time installing Omeka on Hetzner, have done so successfully on other servers.
Installation was fine but now all links provide a 404 error. URL http://qwasha.org.za/qwasha/
However, if I force the extension index.php, i.e. http://qwasha.org.za/qwasha/index.php then all links work?
Could it be something to do with paths.php? Or 'open_basedir' restriction?
This problem is almost always caused by a missing .htaccess file or a RewriteBase problem.
Make sure you have the .htaccess file that should be in Omeka's top-level directory, and if it's not there, re-upload it from the ZIP of Omeka.
If you do have that file there, then you probably need to set a RewriteBase:
thanks, this was the problem. copied .htaccess file up and now working.
thanks for the response John.
