Just tried installing an instance of SilverStripe 3 release candidate on my local webserver. I have several 2.4.x installations running perfectly, with friendly URLs working. All requirements passed on the install screen (including URL rewriting), however during the installation I get the following error:
"Checking that friendly URLs work...
Friendly URLs are not working. This is most likely because a rewrite module isn't configured correctly on your site. You may need to get your web host or server administrator to do this for you:
- mod_rewrite or other rewrite module is enabled on your web server
- AllowOverride All is set for the directory where SilverStripe is installed"
AFAIK, mod_rewrite is enabled, because my other SS sites are still running fine, and my server did pass the requirements check. Any thoughts as to what could be causing this? Re: the second option, "AllowOverride All", could someone explain what this is and how to enable it?
