I have downloaded 2.3.0 RC2 for testing and tried installing on Webdrive. 2.2.3 installs just fine.
With 2.3.0, I immediately got a 500 error. So I started commenting out lines of the .htaccess file until I found the culprit was
So I comment this out and leave everything else as per the original
This results in a 404 error as follows:
The requested URL /httpd/vhlinks/mysite.co.nz/sapphire/main.php was not found on this server.
I think there should be "/home" at the front of that path.
Anyway, I go back to a 2.2.2 site that I have functioning on this same server and directly copy it to the 2.3.0 test directory.
Now when I refresh, the site is re-directed to http://www.install.php, which obviously isn't right.
Any ideas on this? How is 2.3.0's redirecting different to that of 2.2.x? And would this be indicative of the problems I will expect when using future releases of 2.3.x onwards on this host?
