I'm trying to install the 2.1rc for the first time on a machine. I'm running php5 on apache with mod_rewrite turned on.

If I do the rewrite check, it informs me that rewrite is NOT turned on.

My .htaccess file shows this though:

### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
### SILVERSTRIPE END ###

When I run the install script, I see the following:

Installing SilverStripe...

I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation
# Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
# Creating '.htaccess' file...
# Building database schema...

Warning: fopen(/tmp/silverstripe-cache/manifest_home_openbudd_public_html_sapphire_main.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/openbudd/public_html/sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 133

What gives?

Create a folder called silverstripe-cache in the root folder (on the same level as sapphire, cms etc). The problem here is with permissions on temp folders on shared hosts.
