Server configuration

Upon running OXID I get this one error that prevents me from setting up OXID.

“apache mod_rewrite module”

There’s a little red light next to it…how do I make it green :)?

Hi D.,

  • could you make sure contacting your provider that the apache module mod_rewrite is loaded and “AllowOverride” is enabled in httpd.conf?
  • make sure an own .htaccess is allowed by the provider
  • make sure a .htaccess file is in your shop root folder
  • some providers expect the value “Rewrite Base /” for the shop root or “RewriteBase /oxid/” if you installed in a sub-folder. This value has to be set in .htaccess as well.

Hi, a client of our hosting company is trying to install OXID eShop and has the same error:
Server configutation: RED apache mod_rewrite module

I’ve checked your solution but did not work. We have mod_rewrite enabled and .htaccess is parsed properly. This error is on the installation screen and there is no .htaccess file generated.

Can you please give us more solution options?

I can provide you with more server config stats if needed.

Thanks,
Maiahost Support.

What do you mean by

and there is no .htaccess file generated
?
Actually, a .htaccess file is delivered with the package and might have to be complemented with RewriteBase /

However, would you like to give me a test account (by PN)?

Hi Marco and D.
I just followed your instruction and got everything green. By enabling “AllowOverride All” on httpd.conf I’m ready to setup OXID now. I’ll try to find a more restrictive option thou.

Thanks a million!

Hi legarbo,

By enabling “AllowOverride All” on httpd.conf

Right, this one is very tricky, isn’t it?

Thanks for your feed back anyway :slight_smile:

Module rewrite already enabled

There must be an .htaccess which is actually hidden in NIX systems. Where exactly did you download the package?

i cannot see any hidden file look below

[email protected]:/var/www/clients/client1/web11/web/123# ls -a
. config.inc.php getimg.php oxseo.php tmp
… COPYING index.php pkg.info widget.php
