    I've created my first Akelos project, following the tutorial, but using one table which I added with script/migrate. I also created a Scaffold for this table. There were no error messages.
    I added these 2 lines to config.php:

    define('AK_DEBUG', true);
    define('AK_LOG_EVENTS', true);

    When I run http://localhost/project, I get the "Welcome aboard" screen, which I expected. When I added the controller name, I get a 404. Because I put no action, I assume that I would execute the "index" function. Same result. I specify an action of "listing". Same result. 404. I get no log, nor any information.

    How may I fix this bug? Thanx.

    Akelos in 'Dev'-mode would more likely produce errors such as 'Controller X not found'. Or: 'No view for action X in Y'.

    If you get a real 404, then it's probably because of apache/rewrite/vhosts or whatever isnt set up properly.

    Because I've never gotten an Akelos program to run, I can't go back and see what I might have changed to cause the problem. I have a virtual host set up and a non-Akelos PHP program (that I am converting to Akelos) does run. So I don't think I have a problem in httpd.conf:

    <VirtualHost alan.lakeinfoworks.com>
      ServerName alan.lakeinfoworks.com
      DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.htm index.shtml 
      ServerAdmin alan.lake@lakeinfoworks.com
      DocumentRoot /home/alan/www/html
      <Directory "/home/alan/www/html">
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    I don't see a problem in .htaccess either as it was generated as it is here.  (It was not acceptable as an attachment.)

      # If you don't want The Akelos Framework to look in certain directories,

      #   RewriteRule .* - [L]
      # Rewrite URLs of the form 'index.php?ak=x':
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
      RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?ak=$1 [L,QSA]
    ErrorDocument 500 "<h2>Apache server error</h2>Akelos application failed to start properly"

    I've been trying to trace the problem since before my original post, but am no closer to a solution. Any help will be appreciated.

    I've continued to work on this problem and have run into an additional concern. The entire contents of my public directory (including .htaccess) has been deleted. I know that I didn't do it and no one else uses this machine, so I assume that Apache did it.

    1. Has anyone else experienced anything like it?
    2. Can I restore it by copying the contents of the public directory from Akelos, then the .htaccess file from the root?
    3. Does anyone have any ideas for identifying / eliminating this problem?

    I've solved this problem, but would like to close this thread by documenting what happened.

    In the previous post, I had the question (No. 2) "Can I..." I tried and the answer is "yes".

    Akelos documentation speaks of the necessity of changing the group name for each file in a project (including ./.htaccess and public/.htaccess) to that of the web server, which, in my case, is "apache". There is also the need to make group permissions read and write for these files. What I failed to realize is that processing sometimes resets these things to undesirable values and they must be set again. Because I work on a machine on which I have exclusive access, I may change my user group to "apache" and see if that keeps my permissions straight.

    Anyhow, I can now begin to program with Akelos.

    Hi alake

    I am trying desperately to start with some php framework and every single one i try gives me hell...

    I am using windows with xampp 1.7 installed .
    I try the generate scaffold thing but apache gives me 404.
    I have an alias for /myProject to c:\projects\myProject\public in my httpd.conf

    pointing the browser to http://localhost/myProject is ok but http://localhost/myProject/subscriber gives me 404

    Any ideas?
