installation problem - allowoverride all

Postby solishu » October 3rd, 2012, 6:56 pm

I'm trying to install TODCM on our Windows 2008 R2 server with Apache 2.22 installed as part of WAMPServer 2.2. I'm being completely stymied by the allowoverride requirement. I've edited the httpd.conf file to replace all instances of allowoverride none with allowoverride all, but I still can't pass this installation requirement. Here are the relevant parts of my https.conf file with comments removed:

Code: Select all
DocumentRoot "F:/wamp/www/"

<Directory />

Options All
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

</Directory>


Code: Select all
<Directory "F:/wamp/www/">

    Options All
    AllowOverride All
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all

</Directory>

Any idea what else could be causing this to fail?

Did you restart the Apache service or your Windows server after changing the allowoverride values?

Yes - I've restarted Apache dozens of times.

A few other details (just in case they're helpful). The server that Apache is running on is doing a lot of other duties including a file-server and domain controller. It has IIS running for WSUS, but I have Apache configured to use port 8080, so there shouldn't be any conflict.

One other note: I installed WAMPServer on one of our Windows 7 workstations and configured it exactly as we have it on our Windows 2008 R2 server, and TODCM passed the checklist with no problems. I uninstalled WAMP and reinstalled it, made the changes before even launching it for the first time, and still no joy. So there has to be some system configuration of our server that is causing it to fail the .htaccess check. Any ideas what that could be?

I already checked the permissions and have "Full Access" for "Everyone" assigned to the www folder and it's subfolders....

I think the problem is port 8080, the allowoverride check does not detect the non-standard port number I believe.

Do you think there might be a workaround, or am I going to need to come up with another computer to host TODCM?

Just ignore the warning and continue with the installation. You might get an error at the end of the installation, but if you can login to the newly installed site then you are fine.
