    Internal Server Error in Control Panel Link to this post

    Hi guys,

    I recently installed SilverStripe v2.2.3 on my webhost. I am able to log in to my control panel, but when I click on any of the links on the left I receive an Internal Server Error message saying that the server encountered aa internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete the request. My web host was not able to help as they cannot find an 'admin' folder among the SilverStripe files. Can anyone help?

    This wiki page has some info on debugging:

    http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=debugging

    Your error is pretty inspecific - so try some of the suggestions on that page and post your results.

    Open the .htaccess file and try removing these lines:

    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectorySlash Off
    </IfModule>

    Also, ask your web host to confirm that mod_rewrite is enabled and AllowOverride is set to "AllowOverride all" or some other setting where RewriteRules can be specified in the .htaccess file.

    Thank you for replying. Is this the .htaccess file within the SilverStripe folder or the one in the root folder?

    It is in the .htaccess file in the folder of SilverStripe.
    Do you have a similar text in the root too?

    No, the text in the root is in fact different. So do I just put in the following in the .htaccess file?

    <Directory />
    AllowOverride All
    </Directory>

    No, AllowOverride all needs to be set by your server administrator. It specifies which settings are allowed to be controlled within a .htaccess file, so it wouldn't make sense to have it editable within the .htaccess itself.
