i have read the posts here and havent found an answer to this one - my .htaccess is:
RewriteRule ^user/showperson/([0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/$ user/showperson.php?wid=$1&uid=$2
i put the .htaccess in my top level directory for my domain, ping.net - my php scripts are all in the ping subdirectory
so this should change
but all i get is a 404 - am i missing something here? - i have my php scripts running in apache not cgi-bin - i cant flip on cgi-bin until i get the mod_rewrite working - dont know if that matters
thanks for any help, i am stumped!
