    Hello,
    I Was trying to redirect my Sign UP "Page" to signup.php. Changed htaccess.dist by adding
    Redirect 301 /sign-up/ http://a2zblogs.info/wp-signup.php

    since then everything on my blog turns to 404.
    removed the line too from htaccess.dist

    I dont have any .htaccess file but Yes i hav htaccess.dist

    Please help me ASAP

    The Error log of muWordpress in my server is as follows:

    htaccess.dist is a file included in the deafault distribution. It is there, so on install, it gets copied to make .htaccess with your install info.

    Editing that file won't change a thing.

    Was the install working before you made the redirect?
    have you turned on "show hidden files" when you look at the files on the server? If you can't see the htaccess, that's probably why, because in my experience, if it can't make the htaccess fileon install, it bombs and doesn't work at all.

    So go check that first.

    It should look exactly like the htacces.dist, EXCEPT for this part:

    RewriteBase BASE/

    should be

    RewriteBase /

    what if neither htaccess.dist or .htaccess has:
    RewriteBase /

    I'm getting 404 errors on any page but the root but as .dist doesn't have it, I'm confused if it should. That said, I added it and it didn't do anything; does it matter where in the htaccess I put it?

    You should put RewriteBase / before any rewrite rules.
    Also, htaccess.dist has RewriteBase BASE and .htaccess should have RewriteBase / (if you installed WPMU in domain root) or any other value if WPMU is elsewhere, but definitely not default BASE value.
