Hi all,

I am new to SilverStripe. I am trying to install and run SilverStripe at our company's webserver through Filezilla. But when try to install it gives an error message "mod_rewrite enabled -- I can't tell whether mod_rewrite is running. You may need to configure a rewriting rule yourself." I tried Googling a lot but do nt get any solution. What I can figure out is that there is some problem with the code in .htaccess file. My original code is

<Files *.ss>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

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]

Please help me out ASAP. Error message attached.

Thanks in advance... HaRRy

This is not preventing you from installing, just informing you that SilverStripe cannot detect mod_rewrite.

Try installing anyway. If mod_rewrite is setup correctly, all should go well.

Good luck!
