Zend Framework on Apache 1.3.x

Zend Framework on Apache 1.3.x

If you are having problems with the .htaccess file for Zend Framework and getting 500 errors, and are running apache 1.3.x (like at GoDaddy), add a slash before index.php in the rewrite rule.

Here is one of my htaccess files for reference
