Help! My .htaccess doesn’t work on Godaddy hosting or ‘blablabla’ hosting. I hear this a lot, and as a professional website developer I have used Joomla! with search engine friendly URLs on more hosts than I can count. There are some that are trickier than others and even a few that just plain won’t work no matter what.
Most of the people having problems with their .htaccess file on various hosts are having the problem because of two simple reasons.
