To install drupal, you just need to point your browser to the druapal directory. However, when trying to do this ( with http://localhost/~Mark/drupal ) I get the error:
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI script.
I found a 2.5 year old post ( http://drupal.org/node/291669 ) where the following suggestion worked for several people:
I fixed it by changing the AllowOverride directive inside of the container from AllowOverride AuthConfig to be AllowOverride All. This is on line 220 of /Applications/xampp/etc/httpd.conf.
However, that problem has been fixed by now: it already has the setting 'AllowOverride All'.
So I checked error_log and find: /Users/Mark/Sites/drupal/.htaccess: Options not allowed here
I looked in .htaccess but can't figure anything out; various options are set, but you would think those would be necessary. Part of the file is as follows:
- Code: Select all
# Protect files and directories from prying eyes.
# Don't show directory listings for URLs which map to a directory.
# Follow symbolic links in this directory.
# Multiviews creates problems with aliased URLs and is not needed for Drupal.
Does anybody have a solution for this? Thanks!
