Okay. So, I just continued installation disregarding the mod_rewrite and Server Software warnings; however, upon install completion, I get nothingÃ¢â‚¬â€a blank white page of nothingness.
Man, this is really frustrating. I have been using SilverStipe for weeks with ease on my local dev environment, but the minute I try to go live with it, I have nothing but issues.
In summary the issues I'm experiencing:
1. Copying my existing files from the dev environment to the live site yields nothing but a page that displays an index of files in that directory
2. Doing a fresh install of v2.1.1 instead did not create the necessary .htaccess in the silverstripe root directory, so I uploaded a blank .htaccess file which removed the warning
3. I then got a Server Software warning saying: I can't tell what webserver you are running. Without Apache I can't tell if mod_rewrite is enabled.
4. I also got a mod_rewrite warning saying: I can't tell whether mod_rewrite is running. You may need to configure a rewriting rule yourself.
Again, I've checked my database configuration multiple times for accuracy, and confirmed my webserver is running Apache version 1.3.37 (Unix).
Wherein lies the problem here?
Thanks so much for your suggestions thus far. Please let me know if you know of any other possible to solutions.
