Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem.
I have had some trouble getting the mod_rewrite rules to work on my apache installation. I found out yesterday what was giving me the trouble.
I have for the last year or so been running my blog without file extensions. Basically this means that you would link to chrisjdavis.org/index instead of /index.php. This is much better usability, and ensures that no matter what technology I use to power the site it all remains transparent to the user.
This process requires mod_negotiate to be enabled; but of course as I have found out for some reason if negotiate is enabled the WP created rewrite rules bork. So now I am at an impass, since honestly the usability given by negotiate is more important than that given by Cruft Free URL's. So I wanted to throw this out, first of all so that if anyone else is having "mysterious" problems like I was, and is not really using negotiate they can comment it out and be able to take advantage of the WP feature. Second I wanted to know if anyone might have any thoughts on how to get around this, since I am going to need to keep negotiate enabled.
Any help is of course appreciated.
