I just installed CentOS by the directions provided here. Everything else seems to work fine (although i had to install "apr-devel" to get SuPHP to install properly) but I can not use htaccess files unless I change PHP mode to "Fast-CGI" in ISPConfig control panel. The error I keep getting in SuPHP and Mod-PHP modes is ".htaccess: Options not allowed here". I have changed "AllowOverride" to "All" in various places in "/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf" but this doesn't help. ------ I already feel bad about posting this topic. Being a huge n00b that I am, I just found out about the different .vhosts files. And changing AllowOverride there (or adding simple directives to the domain in ispconfig) fixed everything! I thought this was some mystical error from hell, since everything worked in fastCGI mode. So sorry & please feel free to delete this topic.
