Just moved this Joomla 1.6 install over from iPower to Network Solutions. Moved single.5 install formerly also it was okay. That one less. Then when I switch on SEF Friendly Web addresses it's okay. After I switch on URL Spinning to eliminate that annoying index.php within the URL, it states page not found. So...

http://world wide web.bigideaadv.com/a-z/index.php/about-a-and-z - WORKS!

http://world wide web.bigideaadv.com/a-z/about-a-and-z - Does not WORK

Note: everything was working fine around the old site...

Anybody have ideas?

Are you certain that mod_rewrite is switched on?

I first got it to utilize using: RewriteBase /a-z Didn't remember it had been inside a subdirectory.
