I'm just installing SS on a clients server, they seem to have a pretty bare set up, without much installed - no control panels etc. I managed to set up the database using SSH, but it seems the host server hasn't got mod_rewrite installed.
I have never installed a module on a server before - so I need a wee bit of help
is it easy - can I do it through SSH?
is is risky - I can't afford to screw up their server as their others sites are still live
do I have to restart apache - will this take long (again, never done this myself) will it take their existing sites off line?
In the meantime, I'll keep going with build the site - it just look a bit rubbish with the index.php/home/ etc in the link....
