    Silverstripe Installation Problems

    I'm having serious problems installing Silverstripe (both 2.2.3 and 2.3.0 RC2) on Intrepid.

    I have LAMP stack installed as follows:
    • apache 2.2.9-7ubuntu3
    • mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.67, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.2
    • PHP 5.2.6-2ubuntu4 with Suhosin-Patch 0.9.6.2 (cli) (built: Oct 14 2008 20:18:13)


    When installing Silverstripe in /var/www (or anywhere else for that matter), is get an error from the installer as follows:

    Code:
    Friendly URLs are not working. This is most likely because mod_rewrite isn't configuredcorrectly on your site. Please check the following things in your Apache configuration; you may need to get your web host or server administrator to do this for you:
    
        * mod_rewrite is enabled
        * AllowOverride All is set for your directory
    mod_rewrite is installed and enabled. I find it under Loaded Modules when running phpinfo() and the Silverstripe installer claims to be happy that mod_rewrite is enabled too.

    I've put the directive below into the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file (which is included by apache.conf) and also straight into apache.conf and then restarted apache.

    Code:
    <Directory /var/www>
    AllowOverride All
    </Directory>
    None of this has helped. Has anyone run into the same problems? I'm convinced that it's some small setting somewhere that will get it working.

    Thanks

    Re: Silverstripe Installation Problems

    I got a reply for a Silverstripe user on their forums and his advice was to add the following to the Apache config file (apache.conf or httpd.conf)

    Code:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    </IfModule>
    I'll post back if this works.

    Re: Silverstripe Installation Problems

    I just ran into this myself while trying to install silverstripe into a subdirectory of /var/www. My best guess is that the AllowOverride directive doesn't automatically apply to subfolders since using a more specific path worked for me. Adding the following to /etc/apache2/httpd.conf allowed silverstripe to install without errors:

    Code:
    <Directory /var/www/test>
    AllowOverride All
    </Directory>
    In this case I had uploaded all of the silverstripe files to the 'test' directory.

    Re: Silverstripe Installation Problems

    Has anyone gotten SilverStripe to install? I can get it to install, but can't get the modules (this case event_calender) to install. I am having difficulty using the /dev/build function.

    I am using Ubuntu 9. PHP 5 ans mySQL from a LAMP install. Any help would be appreciated.
