I have built my site in my local server xampp, and was following the instructions on how to upload to a web server http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=publishing-to-web-server but when Silverstripe tried to install, I got the following error:
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:
mod_rewrite is enabled
AllowOverride All is set for your directory
I have been over and over lots of posts relating to this error but nothing seems to work and I'm pulling my ever thinning hair out!
I am trying to install on to a 1and1 uk server.
Please could someone help explain the error really really patronisingly as I just don't understand what to do!!
Thank you in advance!

SilverStripe needs the modrewrite. Maybe your webspace doesnÂ´t have that. Check with your provider.

Hi baba papa,
I have contacted 1&1 as you suggested and they have refered me to this link: http://faq.oneandone.co.uk/website_building/website_publishing/htaccess/4.html. But I don't understand it all really and I could do with some further assistance from anyone who thinks they can help.
I have taken a look at some past dicussions on this forum and have tried adding:
to my .htaccess file and this has not worked either.
The link above told me to add this:
RewriteRule ^([a-z]+)\.html$ /index.php?$1 [R,L]
and this did not work.
I am now completely stuck, I have tried installing, deleting, installing again, I have tried a few times to start a fresh install and I get the same error each time. If the tech help at 1&1 are saying its something I need to do, is there anything else I can try?
Any help would be really really appreciated.

IÂ´m not very good when it comes to server questions. There are many threads concerning webspace providers. Take a look at the installation forum.
