Hi,
I'm trying to install SilverStripe in the above environment but no avail. I have enabled mod_rewrite in httpd.conf.

The installation setup gives me an OK for mod_rewrite, but when I proceed with the installation, rewritetest.php tells me that

Warning: file_get_contents(http://silverstripe:8181\/InstallerTest/testrewrite) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error in c:\xampp\htdocs\silverstripe\rewritetest.php on line 47

Warning: file_get_contents(http://silverstripe:8181\/InstallerTest/testrewrite) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error in c:\xampp\htdocs\silverstripe\rewritetest.php on line 47
mod_rewrite doesn't appear to be working. Make sure:

* mod_rewrite is enabled in your httpd.conf
* AllowOverride is enabled for the current path.

When I force installation to proceed, I ended up in an error 500 page.

Can anybody help?

Ive had a similar problem before. If you force installation to continue, and then open up your .htaccess file, you may see this:

RewriteBase \

change it to

RewriteBase /
