    mod_rewrite issue on powweb Link to this post


    I know this is a very common problem, but in 2 days of searching this forum and google, i have not been able to find a clear answer.

    I am trying to install silverstripe on my powweb server and have been getting hung up on the mod_rewrite problem.
    Powweb does support Silverstripe and even has an instant installer, everything seems to install correctly but when i try to alter the first page it gives me the 'internal server error' notice. i have tried a bunch of variations in the .htaccess file, but nothing has seemed to solve the problem.

    currently the .htaccess file shows:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /popv2/

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

    if anyone has experianced this problem before or has any tips, i would greatly appreciate it!
    I love the capabilities of silverstripe, but it seems like i may need to explore other options.

    thanks a lot!

    Does the admin section work? How do you know this is an .htaccess problem?

    I'd suggest checking your log files for a more detailed error message.

    The only thing I can think of is if you're running php in cgi mode and have some directories set 777 permissions.
