ColdBox 3.6 - new laptop setup and issue with SES

HI folks,

I’m setting up a brand new OSX MacBook Pro and have installed ACF 10 on Apache. I migrated my files over to the new machine from the old laptop (which was using ACF 9.0.1) using Migration Assistant.

I had to make changes to my hosts, vhosts and httpd.conf since for some reason these didn’t get migrated.

I have a vhost setup called If I browse to the site the default page renders fine, however as soon as I try to go to it throws an apache error saying the URL isn’t found on the server. I’m guessing this could just be a rewrite rule problem? Below is my .htaccess file

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
#RepeatLimit 0

#SQL Injection Protection --Read More
#Please uncomment to use these rules if below words does not conflict with your friendly-urls. You may modify accordingly.
#RewriteRule ^.EXEC(@.$ /includes/templates/404.html [L,F,NC]

RewriteRule ^$ index.cfm [QSA]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.cfm/%{REQUEST_URI} [QSA,L]

Any help on getting this resolved is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!


Some questions:

Is that the same rewrite file you were using on your old machine?
Can you confirm it’s getting picked up?
Is mod_rewrite enabled?
Are overrides enabled for that directory so Apache will pick up the .htaccess file?
Have you restarted Apache?

Hi Brad,

Thanks for your email.

AllowOverride All was what was missing.
