Controller only accessible via default_route

I have my Northwind controller set as the default_route

When I access this controller via localhost/ it loads the index function. Great. When I access it via localhost/northwind I get a redirect (404).

This is an old application that I recently upgraded to CI 2.

Any idea what might cause this?

Does localhost/index.php/northwind work?

Try posting your .htaccess and routes code, and specify whether you're receiving a CodeIgniter 404 page or a server 404.

My htaccess file is listed below.

I should also have mentioned that I'm trying to access the app from localhost/dev/northwind (the system and application folders are inside the dev folder)

If I try to access with localhost/dev/index.php/northwind it works.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    #Removes access to the system folder by users.
    #Additionally this will allow you to create a System.php controller,
    #previously this would not have been possible.
    #'system' can be replaced if you have renamed your system folder.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^system.*
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?/$1 [L]

    #Checks to see if the user is attempting to access a valid file,
    #such as an image or css document, if this isn't true it sends the
    #request to index.php
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?/$1 [L]

<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
    # If we don't have mod_rewrite installed, all 404's
    # can be sent to index.php, and everything works as normal.

    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php

$route['default_controller'] = "Northwind";
$route['404_override'] = '';

Try changing RewriteBase to "/dev/". Localhost and .htaccess are a bit weird when it comes to subdirectories.

If you're using OS X and MAMP, you might consider upgrading to MAMP Pro, which offers virtual hosts. .htaccess plays much nicer with those on a per-site basis.
