Hello friends,
i am a newbie to Silver Stripe .

While installing Silver Stripe (silverstripe-v2.4.5) on my local machine faced the problem : - Internal Server Error

My Environment details are

OS : Ubuntu 12.04 lts
Server version : Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu)
PHP : PHP 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.11 with Suhosin-Patch
mysql : Server version: 5.5.35-0ubuntu0.12.04.2 (Ubuntu)

I have tested my apache re write mode and it's working fine.

After going through the apache error log file i got the following information .

/var/www/silverstripe/.htaccess: order not allowed here
/var/www/silverstripe/framework/.htaccess: deny not allowed here

I appropriate if anybody could help to resolve this issue

Have you set 'AllowOverride All' in your httpd.conf for Apache? Also check to ensure your htaccess has read permissions of the apache user.

hi camfindlay,
thanks for your response.

AllowOverride All is set in default file under /etc/apach2/sites-available/

And .htaccess have got the permission (777).
