I was interested in trying out cake php framework. I cant get the basic install to work due to .htaccess files

Here is the thread over at their end


but I tried to edit the file and it doesnt work. Still FORBIDDEN error. I'm running vista.

here is my .htaccess file

<Directory "/www/">

# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
#   Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
# The Options directive is both complicated and important.  Please see
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#options
# for more information.

  Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
#   Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit

  AllowOverride All
  Options FollowSymLinks

# Controls who can get stuff from this server.

   Order allow,deny
   Allow from all

thanks for any help, as usual im halted before I get any work done frustrating for non php pros, who have to get everything right before one gets started.

make your .ataccess files which is located in www folder like:

AllowOverride All
Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

or you can delete it!

your configuration of www folder is in apache/conf/httpd.conf already.

An alternative is to add the line to Cake .htaccess file

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   Options +FollowSymLinks
   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteRule	^$ app/webroot/	[L]
   RewriteRule	(.*) app/webroot/$1 [L]

All the best
