Trying to install SilverStripe-v2.3.3 from this site under osx leopard (10.5.8 client, intel 2.2 ghz, 4gb ram) with enthropy 5.3.0-3 to get GD.
I enabled mod_rewrite for my home folder by changing 'AllowOverride None' in users/myusername.conf to 'AllowOverride All AuthConfig'. This works because my local Drupal install now has clean urls enabled (mod_rewrite also shows up with phpinfo() and httpd -M)
The result: I get a 403 error for my silverstripe directory and the directory has also disappeared from my indexes in the browser at http://127.0.0.1 ( I also changed my documentroot to my /Users/myusername/Sites - changing this back does not help)
If I remove 'RewriteEngine On' from .htaccess the directory returns.
Installing it without mod_rewrite does not seem to be possible, even after changing the timestamp issue
Is there some other way I have to access my silvestripe directory? some other lead?
