There was 2 problems that appeared during the installation:

• On File permissions:
" Is the .htaccess file writeable?   User '*****' needs to be able to write to this file:
/..../www/users/......./.htaccess "

•On File permissions:
" mod_rewrite enabled   I can't tell whether mod_rewrite is running. You may need to configure a rewriting rule yourself. "

I dont know about mod_rewrite - Is that enabled?

With the file permissions Im pretty sure all you need to do is to open up terminal and go something like

chown youruser .htaccess

I don't know what you mean...

I got this problem when I installed the cms on my server (not local server).

Maybe this code cold help me:

var.usualUrlCharClasses = "[\w\d\%\&\/\\\-\_\+\=\@\.\,\>\<\~]"

server.error-handler-404 = "/sapphire/main.php"

url.rewrite-once = (
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.pdf)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.swf)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.gif)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.jpg)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.jpeg)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.png)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.xbm)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.xpm)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.css)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.html)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.htm)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.js)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.text)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.txt)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.dtd)$" => "$1",
   "^([^\?\ ]*\.xml)$" => "$1",
   "^/assets/(.*)$" => "/assets/$1",
   "^/("+usualUrlCharClasses+"*)\??(.*)" => "/sapphire/main.php?url=$1&$2",
   )

but I don't know in wich file and line I should post it

Where did you find that code? That would have some information on where to put it?.

I don't know what you mean...

You have a permissions error - User '*****' needs to be able to write to this file. So to fix this you need to use a command called chown (if your server is Unix based..) so if you have SSH access to your server login to it and go to wherever your SS files are and run that command. If you dont have SSH access I dont know if you can do it via FTP..
