this has me really confused...I have this in .htaccess:
Code:
RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule /download/([0-9]+) /scripts/download.php?prod=$1

but for some reason visiting /download/1 causes an error 404. I can't see anything wrong with my code, any ideas?

yes, download is a directory...here's the directory structure:
Code:

/
|
|---> public_html
               |
               |---> .htaccess
               |---> scripts
               |           |---> download.php
               |---> download

no...as shown in my lovely diagram, the .htaccess file is in /public_html/ (at my site's root)

Does it work any better in the download directory? If not, try getting rid of the directory...

Are you sure the .htaccess file isn't being ignored or something? Try putting some code in which should produce a 500 error, and see if it does. Also make sure mod_rewrite is installed on your server.

mod_rewrite is installed, and the .htaccess also sets the php include_path...so it's not that
