Or if your server is not running apache and you still want to use mod_rewrite, check out “Installing mooSocial without mod_rewrite” section.
Installing mooSocial without mod_rewrite
For some hosting services (e.g. GoDaddy, 1and1…), you might need to add RewriteBase statements to the .htaccess files mooSocial uses (/.htaccess, /app/.htaccess, /app/webroot/.htaccess).
RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /
If you don't want or can't get mod_rewrite (or some other compatible module) up and running on your server, you'll need to use the built in pretty URLs. In /app/Config/core.php, uncomment the line that looks this
Also remove these .htaccess files:
/.htaccess /app/.htaccess /app/webroot/.htaccess This will make your URLs look like www.example.com/index.php/controllername/actionname/param rather than www.example.com/controllername/actionname/param/
