I have recently setup a index.php redirect through .htaccess. The idea here is to negate duplicate content issue that crops up when a site has both an index.php and / (homapage) getting indexed.
I used the technique listed here.
It works great too. The one issue is, it breaks the 404 pages.
So if a user types in or goes to www.example.com/dafjkadbfda instead of serving the 404 page, what happens is the URL stays the same, in this case the broken one, and it severs the index.php page.
This in turn is opening another can of worms in that all those broken pages are coming up as duplicate content and meta. So while this is somewhat seo related, it does have to deal with the .htaccess. :) This has been an issue on many sites that I thought the .htaccess redirect worked on. Thanks in advance.
