Problog doesn't support pretty URLs - Pages Can't be Found

Permalink Browser Info Environment
We have Problog installed on our site. When we switched to pretty URLs, we were no longer able to access any of the Problog pages or subpages. We get the error message "Error establishing a database connection." There is no problem viewing these pages from the site map, but the map uses the following convention when loading a page:

Main page

No problem, the page is there.

Problem Example:

You get "Error establishing a database connection"

if you add in index.php it takes you straight to page.

it works for this page and all the subpages as long as you add index.php

So, ProBlog isn’t recognizing Pretty URLs.

We have to use pretty URLs because of content download on the site, plus they are much simpler for viewers to use.

How do you correct this problem.
