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.

I proceed and then, I get a message saying everything was successfuly installed, but then this:

"The requested URL /silver/home/successfullyinstalled was not found on this server."

I'm sure mod_rewrite is enabled, here is an excerpt from /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

However, I have tested the Alice and Bob example (the redirection is not working in the example isn't working).

I'm new to theLinux environment, but have managed this far.. I'd appreciate some help with this.

PHP 5.1.2
MySQL 4.1.20

The server runs Apache

This is my .htaccess

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /silver

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]


All help appreciated.

Did you double check those two points?

* mod_rewrite is enabled in your httpd.conf, ie, your apache config.
* AllowOverride is enabled for the current path. This will also be in your apache config.

If you're on a shared server you will need to ask the administrator
