I have a good install on URL1 and would like to mirror this site on URL2. I copied all files and folders to URL2, then downloaded a backup of URL1. Opened the backup and changed the dbname and dblogin. Then uploaded the new sql file in the cpanel of URL2.

Then I opened URL2 to /install.php. Fine. But now I get this:
If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

* Building database schema...
* Checking that friendly URLs work...
* Friendly URLs are not working. This is most likely because mod_rewrite isn't configuredcorrectly on your site. Please check the following things in your Apache configuration; you may need to get your web host or server administrator to do this for you:
o mod_rewrite is enabled
o AllowOverride All is set for your directory

It won't go beyond this page. Any suggestions?

Have you checked those 2 mod_rewrite settings on your host that the installer suggests?
