file_column on dreamhost

I am having trouble displaying an image after it is uploaded using
file_column on Dreamhost. If I tell .htaccess to let the URL's to the
file_column folders the image will display, but I can no longer upload
an image. Any help would be great. Thanks.

This is the error I'm getting in my log if it helps:

ActionController::RoutingError (no route found to match "/staffer/
picture/1/newchurch.jpg" with {:method=>:get}):

I forgot to mention that this occurs even when the permissions are set
correctly on the file.
