Server error - localhost install
« on: May 23, 2007, 03:48:37 pm »

Ok I installed XAMMP to run 1.6 and after getting apache and mysql up and running I know run into an error. The error reads:

Quote
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.
What could be the cause of this?

I don't think anyone can help you, if you provide that little information. Could be a configuration problem, could be anything. Have you already tried an index.html, or searched for XAMMP issues?
Besides that, this is the bug report section, which means that problems should only be reported here when default sNews 1.6 is causing the problem. We don't know that yet.

This is the default 1.6 file. XAMMP is working, I get the localhost page and can get into phpmyadmin. I try to access the localhost/snews16/ folder and I get the error message. That would lead me to believe that there is either something wrong with sNews 1.6 with the XAMMP configuration, regardless if it is a config problem with the server, sNews is the only file throwing the error, all other scripts work as intended.

Ahh, well, it's not a bug in the snews 1.6. I got it up and running perfectly on XAMPP, thus this topic is moved to another location...

Ok I now have the issue solved. Sorry for my mistake, I did not have the mod_rewrite turned on in the http.conf file. This is entirely my mistake for overlooking something so simple.

Yeah yeah I know, I should have known better. I figured XAMMP would have worked straight out of the box. Apparently not though. Lesson learned.
