    Understanding silverstripe and rewrite? (install problems) Link to this post


    I am having trouble getting silver stripe to install and run on my web host. (question at end of post)

    I have been looking for solutions for the last week (really want to get it working it looks fantastic) and here is what I have come up with:

    My host looks like it has all the requirements (apache,mysql,mod_rewrite) but:

    - My host doesn't support provide the "$_SERVER['SERVER_SIGNATURE']" php variable (turned of for 'security' i think) which means the installer can't detect the web server type.Is there any reason it couldnt use $_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'] or both?

    - My host doesn't have/support the php function 'apache_get_modules' (possibly this means they run php as cgi?). This is my main problem I think as the installer cant make the .htaccess.

    - My host advertises silverstripe support yet it won't install ! (www.siteground.com) I logged a support ticket and I got the kind of response you expect from a dirt cheap web host.

    So my question is where can I get information on how mod_rewrite (.htaccess) needs to be setup in order for silverstripe to work correctly? Is there some technical documentation I can look at on how silverstripe handles requests?

    Thanks, David.

    Oops, this looks like what I'm after: http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=execution-pipeline

    Still if anyone else has experienced this problem before some pointers would be greatly appreciated.
