I just ran into a little hiccup that made me curious.
On my desktop I have an older version (fairly old) of Xampp running with the latest version of Roots. I have had no problems.
I decided to install the latest version of Xampp on my laptop using the latest version of Roots. I just couldn’t get roots to write to the .htaccess file correctly. My links were all wrong. I flushed the permalinks etc… and looked at my permissions and noodled over it for hours…sadly.
Then out of curiosity, I decided to try the “Classic” version of roots. Boom, my .htaccess file was written to like it should be.
Normally, I would say this is just a write issue, but find in odd that I can get the Classic version to work right off the bat. Any ideas?
