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:
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'.
