cake php install


Recommended Posts

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.

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
