apache, .htaccess, mod_rewrite, I hate you all
Hi to everyone.
I got an Apache configuration problem that is sending me mad. I mean absolutly mad!!!!!!!
Ok I've set up a test web server for some of the guys at work and I'm struggling to get everything working. The problem being .htaccess and more
specifically the ability to rewrite URL's using mod_rewrite. I used SuSE 10.3 which by default doesn't include the module necesary but I've
seen to that and according to the php test page its loaded as a module so it should just be a case of enabling .htaccess in httpd.conf right??
I know the .htaccess file is good because the website works fine online so its purely a config issue on our machine here.
I've googled the problem to death and have now got to the point where I'm doubting my own name, never mind my configuration!!!
Can anybody give me some advice on how to get this working, how to configure my httpd.conf file. Do I need to make entries in other config files?
Here's the business end of my httpd.conf. At this point I doubt its correct.
# forbid access to the entire filesystem by default
Deny from all
# use .htaccess files for overriding,
# and never show them
<Files ~ "^\.ht">
Deny from all
When I look through the apache errors i get "script '/srv/www/htdocs/mysite/blahblahblah.php' not found or unable to stat"
I'm close to insanity here so can anybody point me in the right direction
