I'm trying to install Silverstripe v2.3.6 on OpenSuse Linux v11.1 running on a PC at home, to learn something about using it (I'm in charge of a project implementing a Silverstripe based website at work, so figured this would be useful)
I'm technically moderately competent, DBA/GIS & basic web mapping , & running Linux for about 15 years now... but know next to nothing about the underlying setup of Apache, etc. Given the nature of a CMS, I'm not too concerned that an RPM for
OpenSuse doesn't exist, but the book & online docs for a Linux install are pretty much absent, assuming that someone trying to do what I am knows more than I do :-)
I have got the install page running, & enabled mod_rewrite for Apache, the install check says everything is OK.
When I click the install button, I get:
"Friendly URLs are not working. This is most likely because mod_rewrite isn't configured correctly on your site. Please check the following things in your Apache configuration; you may need to get your web host or server administrator to do this for you:
* mod_rewrite is enabled
* AllowOverride All is set for your directory
I'm assuming that if mod_rewrite is enabled, that is not the problem. So what is "my directory" & under Apache/OpenSuse, how should I set "AllowOverride All" for it?
I figure that it is in httpd.conf, & needs an entry something like this, (setting the root to pretty open & insecure, but hopefully working):
Allow from all
But I still get the same error...
Any advice appreciated....
