I am personally converting all of my hosting to 2.4 and an could not care less 
about bad service from Go Daddy and I'm not interested in keeping services on 
2.2! The POINT here is that sites that work perfectly stably on 2.2 no longer 
work on 2.4. The reason is that some team made a decision to break them ... It 
SHOULD be that the same team now HELPS to make applications work on THEIR new 
preferred style of working? I've tried several of the 'fixes' that I've used for 
my other sites and those posted on the owncloud lists as well as fixes posted 
across a number of other projects that are now also broken due to 'go daddys' 
stupid decision. These fixes are not working, and I can't work out why! All of 
the other sites I've moved over are now quite happy with their revised rewrite 
rules, but there is something I am missing with this one :( Hopefully the people 
who developed these changes in the rules can spot what has gone wrong? Those of 
us who are trying to implement the changes need that expert input hence asking here!
