trubble installing elgg
 
I have debian perfect setup. I am trying to install elgg. If I keep the .htacess file in the root dir the install gives me a 500 error. If I take out the file I can get to the install. What is in this file that is giving me trubble and how can I fix it? Thanks in advance.
HTML Code:

<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
    # ugly ugly hack to detect missing mod_rewrite
    # RedirectMatch must be to an absolute destination, so forces 500 error...
    ErrorDocument 500 "Elgg error: Apache does not have mod_rewrite loaded. Please check your apache setup."
    RedirectMatch 302 .* index.php
</IfModule>

<Files "htaccess-dist">

Is mod_rewrite enabled? Are there any errors in Apache's error log?
Which distribution are you using?

cruz 12th July 2008 22:18

elgg install trubble
 
Yes mod_rewrite is installed and enabled. It is elgg-0.9.2. I am trying to install. I see in the docs this.
HTML Code:

Your  Apache configuration  must have AllowOverride set to All for the directory where Elgg is installed.
How do I check this? Thanks. There are no errors in apache because I did not try to install without the.htaccess file and it will not bring up the install with it in the root. I am using Apache 2.2
New info...I was looking in the vhost for the site I am trying to setup elgg on and this is what is in there.
HTML Code:

<Directory /var/www/web4/web>
  Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
  AllowOverride None
  Order allow,deny
  allow from all
  AddHandler mod_python .py
  PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
  PythonDebug On
 </Directory>

Dose this need to be changed? if so please tell me what to change and why so I can understand. thanks

falko 13th July 2008 13:25

Please change
Code:

AllowOverride None
to
Code:

AllowOverride All
and restart Apache.

koltz 10th October 2008 15:08

Thanks for the post
 
I am having the same issue, but not sure where the vhost is located. I found the main vhosts file, but not sure where the individual ones are located as you are mentioning in the thread?

Thanks,

Corey

Trouble installing crontab
 
I'm using "The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 9.04 [ISPConfig 3]" install and i'm installing elgg.

But when I want to install the crontab I get the following error:

Code:

"crontab.example":8: bad minute
errors in crontab file, can't install.

I must ad to this that i'm not installing the elgg to the root folder
"/var/www/www.website.com/web" but in a subdirectory
"/var/www/www.website.com/web/elgg" so I also placed "/data/" at "/www/data/".
Further I followed the How To.

Can anyone help?

falko 19th August 2009 13:47

What's in crontab.example?

Christian 19th August 2009 14:22

Hi Falko,

This is what I have in my crontab (It's the default list btw)

Looks ok. You can run
Code:

crontab -e
manually and paste the contents of that file.
