After playing with the .htaccess i've hit a brick wall. My site will load from just the domain name but won't load any css or js.

here's my .htaccess:

Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /magento/

RewriteRule . index.php [L]

Magento is located in Httpdocs/magento/

This is my first time editing a .htaccess file

I have base URLS set to http://mystore.com/magento/

I have seo rewrites enabled

  • After running firebug i can see that it's calling all the js & css from the root directory.
