404 when accessing /blog

I installed the perch app, and in the perch control panel everything seems to be fine with the blog, but I'm unable to access it via [url]/blog - I'm using modrewrite for other aspects of the site, but no wildcard or universal rewrites. Server logs are just saying:

File does not exist: /home/[user]/public_html/[url].com/blog, referer: https://www.[url].com/blog/

Any ideas?

Does it work without the rewrites?

Nope, I just wiped my entire .htaccess file clean, still a 404. I did do an upgrade on perch as well, but that also seemed to go smoothly. Could the update have broken the routing for the blog app? (I did the update before installing the blog) Also, is there a way for me to use rewrite to make the /blog work? Where would I need to point it?

Have you just used our blog example pages? What is in the filesystem at /blog?

My file system doesn't have a directory titled blog. And yes, it would be the default templates, I was going to style after implementation.

You need to have pages there (this is Perch not Perch Runway?)

There are example pages in the zip. Put them into your site and go from there.

Perfect. Thanks!
