    I use pligg cms for couple of years and everythings goes well until Pligg project shutting down officially. I use pligg for now but I like to use hotaru for future.

    my first problem in hotaru :
    I just downloaded Hotaru 1.7 today and install on localhost (windows 7+Xampp) without any changes in the hotaru cms package.
    after set "FRIENDLY URLS" to "on" in admin panel and rename ".htaccess" file, my hotaru website do not work and automatically redirect to localhost dashboard. why?
    is there a special setting for using Seo Friendly URLs?

    forgive me for my bad english,

    best regards

    Welcome to Hotaru.

    When you say you renamed your .htaccess file, do you mean you changed it to something other than .htaccess? Or do you mean you changed the RewriteBase command to point to your localhost folder? The .htaccess file needs to stay named .htaccess. Also, please make sure your RewriteBase directory has the trailing slash.
