Webserver-Problem with .htaccess -> no installation possible


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to install osCommerce, but right when i browse to the installation directory i get an


Internal Server Error (500)


my apache2 error log says the following:


[Wed Nov 16 12:25:20 2005] [alert] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] /srv/www/htdocs/web17/html/catalog/.htaccess: AllowOverride not allowed here
[Wed Nov 16 12:25:20 2005] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] File does not exist: /srv/www/htdocs/web17/html/favicon.ico


My httpd.conf looks as following:


<Directory />
Options None
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all

<Directory "/srv/www/htdocs/web17/html/catalog">
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

# use .htaccess files for overriding,
AccessFileName .htaccess
# and never show them
<Files ~ "^\.ht">
Order allow,deny
Deny from all


I'm an apache2 and linux beginner... do you know what to do to get osCommerce working?


thanks in advance
