When I try and install it it just gets to here and stops.

"Installing SilverStripe...

I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

* Setting up 'mysite/_config.php'...
* Setting up /home/huaraz/public_html/mysite/_config.php"

It also says I don't have mod_rewrite, but my hosting company said mod_rewrite was enable on the server:

"URL rewriting support You need mod_rewrite to use friendly URLs with SilverStripe, but it is not enabled." but I dhould be able to instll without a mod_rewrite??

Changed permissions etc.

I have done an instillation before on the server but now it just doesn't work.

MySQL version 5.0.90-community

Hi pat242,

Are you installing SilverStripe 2.4.3? Some changes were made to make mod_rewrite detection better.

One thing you can try is setting the PHP "display_errors" flag to On, as it may be "Off" by default in the host PHP configuration.

In the .htaccess file where SilverStripe is installed, add this line to the bottom:

php_flag display_errors On

Once you've done that, try installing again and see if it helps.

SilverStripe should install without mod_rewrite, the fact that it stalled during installation may be because of an error that is not being revealed.
