Hi, I spent much time today trying to figure out why
the URL Writer module wasn't working. Would it be
possible to have a small ammount of useful hints in the
URL Writer Module, or a link to some suggestions as to
how to get it to work?
Also, even after I got the URL Writer module working
properly, It still says "Apache mod_rewrite is not
installed or not enabled." in the configuration area.
It would be nice if this reported properly.
Some starting points for a list of things that need to
1) Uncomment the following line of httpd.conf:
# LoadModule include_module modules/mod_include.so
2) Ensure the .htaccess file has sufficient rights. The
AllowOverride directive for gallery2/ must be set to at
least FileInfo Options. The following addition to
httpd.conf worked fine for me:
AllowOverride FileInfo Options
Note that defualt configuration of this server is
AllowOverride None. It took me quite a while to track
down the reason it wasn't working, as it seemed like a
problem with mod_rewrite.
Server info: Apache 2.0.52, PHP 5.0.2, WinXPpro
Software info: gallery-2.0-beta-2
