    Newbie with rewritetest error Link to this post

    Hi all. I've tried installing SS on my Vista machine, running Apache. I'm fairly new to php and have installed EasyPHP locally and successfully developed a few basic php apps. I tried installing SS into www/silverstripe (http://localhost/silverstripe). I'm getting what seems to be a common error with Vista, but I've been unable to solve the problem - or see where to go next. The error on install is:

    ERROR: mod_rewrite not working, redirecting to mod_rewrite test page

    then it tries to redirect to rewritetest but times out.

    I've tried going to http://localhost/silverstripe/home/successfullyinstalled?flush=1 but I get this error:
    Not Found

    The requested URL /silverstripe/home/successfullyinstalled was not found on this server.
    (there is no 'home' directory in the silverstripe folder)

    When I go back and try to run the installer I see:

    Note: It seems as though SilverStripe is already installed here. If you ask me to install, I will overwrite the .htaccess and mysite/_config.php files.
    I'm on a bit of a steep learning curve here right now, so I'm hoping someone will help. Hopefully it's something simple that I'm just not 'getting'.

    Thanks much.

    I've figured it out. Did a bit more reading and realised that even though mod_rewrite was enabled I still needed to AllowOveride All for the current path. Which I did and that works. One question, thoug: Should I have enabled Allow Overwrite for the whole www directory or just the silverstripe directory? I enabled it for www.
    Thanks again.

    Hi Webfaery,

    How did you AllowOveride All for the current path??

    Thanks
