This seems to be a re-occuring problem I've searched high and low on the internet but can not find a solution to the mod_rewrite issue
My hosting provider: 1and1.co.uk
I've never got this to fully work and I had problems with a wordpress blog that used the same hosting space and I have worked away around this by using a sub domain for the wordpress blog.
1and1 customer support, sent me the following message and i'll be honest, its a little confusing as im not an advanced techy person:
This is an email update about your call earlier. As we forward your issue with our higher support to check, we received updates that system requirements for the application installed was actually met with the current package that you have. We actually checked all necessary settings with the server with your domain and was actually working fine. It was concluded that this issue was actually into the configuration of the application you used. We tried to serach it any possible solutions for the error message that you received and it has something to do with one of your php file.
Based on our source, it was advice to reinstall again the application to the server and access to a (mysql) database, then use the database dump to update the database. Next you need to update the database credentials you'll find in the /mysite/_config.php settings.
Make sure you have a /silverstripe-cache/ directory and make it writable (if it exists and there are still any files in it, you can throw them away first). Make sure the /assets/ directory and all that's in it is writable as well.
To give you for information, please contact the application support.
