Login problems

Hi all,

Perch seems top be redirecting to directories and not files eg: which brings us to a Forbidden message, if we change the URl to perch/index,php we are presented with the login screen, and when we hit login, we are redirected to /perch and get page not found?

We've added index.php to the Apache config file as a DirectoryIndex DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var index.php

Do you know what might be up here?

Have you restarted apache since making your config change? The DirectoryIndex directive isn't working.

Should i raise a private ticket so you guys can investigate we are quite new to using perch and moving away from wordpress etc..

As i recall yes we did this, was one of the first things we thought of!

You need to get your server to a state where /perch/ resolves to /perch/index.php.

Ok drew we did a bit of digging around and found who ever setup the server in the first place did a terrible job lol Anyway we've managed to get everything working now thanks for the support!
