Magento mod_rewrite doesn’t work 3

After installation of Magento and ensuring that mod_rewrite is enabled and working on my apache server, the Magento shopping cart still gives me the below error:

Whoops, our bad…

The page you requested was not found, and we have a fine guess why.
  • If you typed the URL directly, please make sure the spelling is correct.
  • If you clicked on a link to get here, the link is outdated.

The Fix

Log into the admin area and navigate to system->cache management.  Click the “refresh” button next to “catalog rewrites”.  That’ll fix’er.  It’s pretty dumb that this must be done on a fresh install, but it does the trick.
