    Installation issue with .htaccess file Link to this post

    Hello all,

    I am trying to install Silverstripe in MAMP.

    This is the error I am getting from the installation process.
    Is the .htaccess file writeable?   User 'Joo' needs to be able to write to this file:

    The file is currently owned by 'root'. We recommend that you make the file group-writeable and change the group to one of these groups:
    - admin

    For example:
    chmod g+w /Users/Joo/Sites/silverstribe/.htaccess
    chgrp admin /Users/Joo/Sites/silverstribe/.htaccess

    Can you please advice me on how to resolve the issue?

    Not sure if the webuser on mamp (apache or maybe www-data) is in the admin group. Since it is a local host try just make it 775 (or change ownership of the file to apache)
