Summary0000397: Problem with .htaccess on Rackspace Cloud Server
DescriptionWent to install R5.0rc on my cloud server under the subdirectory /devwiki/ and was given a 404 when accessing the /devwiki/ directory. Furthermore, accessing the index.php directly was loading but not loading any CSS/JS files for the installation.
Steps To ReproduceNot sure if this is specific to Rackspace cloud servers, but it definitely presents a problem on them.
Additional InformationThe fix for this was to add the following line to the root directory's .htaccess:

RewriteBase /devwiki/

I'm not a good resource on mod_rewrite, so there may be a better (more dynamic) way to handle this with mod_rewrite, but I thought you should at least know of the problem.

Have included the .htaccess I'm now using (successfully).

We should add a hint to the install help page and to

===set RewriteBase in .htaccess==

RewriteBase /test/

In some cases it is necessary to add ...

That would've helped me fix the problem, definitely.

Also, I might give it a shot to get working on Windows with IIS (the URL Rewrite module that can be used with IIS 7 should handle this without any problems). Will let you know if I get around to it.
