The clean URLs feature isn't working on my web site (http://www.dopplervalueinvesting.com). When I log into my admin page and go to Configuration -> Clean URLs, I get the button for running the clean URL test and the following error message:
Use URLs like example.com/user instead of example.com/?q=user.
Clean URLs cannot be enabled. If you are directed to this page or to a Page not found (404) error after testing for clean URLs, see the online handbook.
Also, the clean URL test fails.
When I go to http://example.com/?q=admin/settings/clean-urls/ (with "example" and "admin" replaced with the appropriate values), I see the list of admin tasks (dashboard, content, structure, appearance, people, modules, configuration, reports, help).
When I eliminate the "?q=" from the above URL, I get a 404 not found error.
According to what I've read, I need to set up my .htaccess file. Exactly what do I need to put in? The default .htaccess file in the public_html directory is:
The following disables the display of a file
index of a folder if there is no index found
such as index.html, index.php, etc...
If you wish to change a PHP Setting you need
to do it here and it will affect the folder
that this file is located in as well as all
sub-folders unless the sub-folder has it's
As an example to turn the PHP Setting
"magic_quotes_gpc" on you would uncomment
the following line:
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc on
To set a value that is not on/off you need
to use the php_value setting in the following
php_value setting_to_change = value
