Topic: Having terrible trouble getting clean URLs to work
I've been trying to get WolfCMS to install with clean URLs on my hosting.
I'm installing in the root of my domain, I've:
removed the underscore from _.htaccess
set the rewritebase to /
checked that the installer sets rewrite as 'true'
tried various combinations of commenting on the first three server configuration lines in .htaccess
tried the advice in this thread: http://www.wolfcms.org/forum/topic404.html
For most combinations of the above, I just get a 500 error when trying to run the install. For the combinations that work, the install appears to run OK, but when I try to log in, nothing happens - it just clears the username and password fields.
I'm on shared linux hosting with 1and1 (which I understand is a problem in some cases - nonstandard configuration).
Test installs without clean URL configuration have worked OK for me, but I really need clean URLs, so I can use the Aliases or Redirector plugins. (I also wasn't able to get either of those working, but I think that's probably the same problem as above).
Any advice gratefully received. If I've omitted some pertinent detail, please ask.
