Hi Community,

I searched in this Forum about a solution to install silverstripe 2.4 on a 1and1 webserver (usa). I had many problems to do that and I found no solution?

I modified the .htaccess file with that code: AddType x-mapp-php5 .php // I have php5 now :)

I have 777 to every silverstripe file.

Now I have the install routine. But it says me this 2 errors:

Server software   Unknown web server

URL rewriting support   You need mod_rewrite to use friendly URLs with SilverStripe, but it is not enabled.

Database server exists   I couldn't find a database server on 'db2423.perfora.net ': Unknown MySQL server host 'db2423.perfora.net ' (1)

I made no mistakes with database and I also have access with phpMyadmin or MYSQLDUMPER.

I found that thread but the problem is still the same: http://www.silverstripe.org/archive/show/4470

my .htaccess

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
<Files *.ss>
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
   Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Files>

<Files web.config>
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
</Files>

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

Please help me! The 1and1 support is also not able to help grrrrrrrr

Thank very much!

When you created the database, did you choose MySQL 5?

Also, double-check that the hostname is correct.

Yes it is MYSQL 5 and I controled everything several times with the control panel.

I tryed localhost also but the name is db2423.perfora.net for the server. The username is correct and the database name also.

I don't understand that?

Somebody wrote I have to write in the .htaccess

RewriteBase /

on which position? Nothing happens?

I hate 1and1 always problems with that servers.

Please help Community!

I'm having this same problem. I set up a SilverStripe installation on my 1and1 server, and everything works fine. I'm trying to set up one on another server using a 1and1 database (host name: db2xxx.perfora.net) and I'm getting the same error as above:

Database server exists   I couldn't find a database server on 'dbxxx.perfora.net': Unknown MySQL server host 'db2xxx.perfora.net' (1)

I tried connecting to an existing database, then I created a new one to see if that changed things, but I'm still getting the error.
