Hi Mark,
I was looking through my conf file when talking to Gord and I think I stumbled on something that may help you.
There's a rewrite rule in the apache conf file 'httpd-vufind.conf' on my /vufind/ root.
I simply included that file into the main apache conf and all was good.

Subject: [VuFind-General] Rewrite problem?

Hi, all,

I did finally get an almost working VuFind (v1.0 RC1) instance working under Ubuntu 8.10.  With Java set to use 1 GB of RAM, the loader roared through 669,000+ MARC21 bib records in 46 minutes, this on a Gateway laptop with a 2 GHz Centrino dual-core processor.

Anyway, when I go to http://localhost/vufind I get the start page.  So far so good.  However, when I enter a word ("cat") and search, I get:

Not Found
The requested URL /vufind/Search/Home was not found on this server.
Apache/2.2.9 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.2.6-2ubuntu4 with Suhosin-Patch Server at localhost Port 80

Here are the most recent entries in some log files:

   Apache2 error log:
      [Tue Nov 11 08:33:20 2008] [error] [client] File does not exist: /usr/local/vufind/web/Search, referer: http://localhost/vufind/

I looked in /usr/local/vufind/web/ and I don't find Search, I find services/Search.  What needs to be modified so Apache2 looks in the right place?

Thanks in advance for your time and help,
