silverstripe 2.2.1 (stable?????)

i've tried on pampa, easyphp2, and apache2 on debian
it doesn't work !!!!

all time the same error:

mod_rewrite doesn't appear to be working. Make sure:

* mod_rewrite is enabled in your httpd.conf
* AllowOverride is enabled for the current path.

Please check these options, then refresh this page.If you believe that your configuration is correct, click here to proceed anyway. <http://localhost:8080/test/cms/silverstripe2/rewritetest.php?force=1>

but mod_rewrite is loaded and AllOverride is "all"

i had the same problem with 2.2.1 stable and my Webhoster (DomainFactory).

But after adding the line: RewriteBase "/" in my .htaccess file, everything seems to work now!

So maybe that was of help to you...

sorry, my fault.

in httpd.conf of easyphp2 there are 2 parameters to modify:

DocumentRoot "${path}/www"
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Satisfy all


<Directory "${path}/www">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

one more thing: i've downloaded the windows autoinstall version, and the upload of images doesn't work.
