Magento setup in root folder and htaccess

    Hi,

    I'm trying to setup Magent(webshop) in the root of the website but I'm having trouble with the .htaccess file.

    Reading through the forum the solution seems to be to put an apache directive like this in ISCconfig for the particular website:
    <Directory /var/www/web5/web/magento/>
    AllowOverride All
    </Directory>

    If I setup magento in the subdirectory ../megento/ and use the apache directive everything works ok.
    But if I setup magento in the root of the website in ../web/ I get an access error.

    I then of course use this as directive:
    <Directory /var/www/web5/web/>
    AllowOverride All
    </Directory>

    If I then tweak the .htaccess file and comment the modules mod_php5.c, mod_ssl.c and mod_rewrite.c out I do get access to the site only other access errors remain after setup(image upload for example).
    I have given every file and directory 777 to be sure that is not the problem.

    Looks like some kind of directoy pointer or what I should call it.

    Anybody any thought or experiance with magento?
    Thanks up front for any info.

    ps. I tried coping and pasting the whole .htaccess file into the apache directive field but that did not work either.

    Are there any errors in the Apache error log of that web site (it's in/var/www/web5/log/)?

    .htaccess errors

    Hi,

    Yes there are error messages.
    If I use the .htaccess file where I commented out the some stuff I get:
    ..../.htaccess: options not allowed here

    If I use the one(out of the box) that works in the subdirectory /magento/ I get:
    ..../.htaccess: PHP value not allowed here.

    Unfortunatly not something like, line 20 or anything more specific.

    The .htaccess file contains the following mod_rewrite option:
    #Rewritebase /magento/

    It is commented out by default and can be used if you want to use a different directory than the subdirectory of /magento/.
    Unfortunalty I have to comment out the whole mod_rewrite part to get it to work in the root of the website in the first place.

    If don't comment out anything and use the Rewritebase option it doesn't work either.
    I have used the / and /web/ but no luck, even the full path from the real root does not make a difference.
    Using only the RewriteBase option in the mod_rewrite part leaves me with the same errors and the log says: PHP value not allowed here

    Any option left to see what is not allowed?

    .htaccess

    Hi,

    Thanks for the help by the way.

    I did some more testing and I think the apache directive(AllowOverride All) is completely ignored on the root web folder.
    That is probably the reason I have to edit the .htacces file.
    I managed to get magento running in a subfolder /shop/ this could be plan B.

    Anyway, here is the complete .htaccess file

    Did you try
    Code:
    <Directory /var/www/web5/web/>
    AllowOverride All
    </Directory>
    in the Apache Directives field in ISPConfig?
