    It wont install it just freezes Link to this post

    When I try and install it it just gets to here and stops.

    "Installing SilverStripe...

    I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

    If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

    * Setting up 'mysite/_config.php'...
    * Setting up /home/huaraz/public_html/mysite/_config.php"

    It also says I don't have mod_rewrite, but my hosting company said mod_rewrite was enable on the server:

    "URL rewriting support   You need mod_rewrite to use friendly URLs with SilverStripe, but it is not enabled." but I dhould be able to instll without a mod_rewrite??

    Changed permissions etc.

    I have done an instillation before on the server but now it just doesn't work.

    MySQL version    5.0.90-community

    Hi pat242,

    Are you installing SilverStripe 2.4.3? Some changes were made to make mod_rewrite detection better.

    One thing you can try is setting the PHP "display_errors" flag to On, as it may be "Off" by default in the host PHP configuration.

    In the .htaccess file where SilverStripe is installed, add this line to the bottom:

    php_flag display_errors On

    Once you've done that, try installing again and see if it helps.

    SilverStripe should install without mod_rewrite, the fact that it stalled during installation may be because of an error that is not being revealed.
