I know I have to chown the .htaccess file in the root - does anyone know what I have to change it to please?
Hi. It should be writable by the SilverStripe installer script. After installation it doesn't need write permissions.
So, you should set the permissions in a way, that the "apache user" has write access.. 777 to be on the save side
Strange, the installation page shows a 500 internal server if htaccess is there.
If I delete htaccess the installation page shows this:
User 'mydomain' needs to be able to write to this file:
The file is currently owned by 'root'. There is no user-group that contains both the web-server user and the owner of this file. Change the ownership of the file, create a new group, or temporarily make the file writeable by everyone during the install process.
