i’m new here, i use “trial 2 weeks period” of DH and try install CMS Bitrix (www.bitrix.com) but Bitrix Wizard says me “.htaccess processing is off”. Bitrix support say that i should uncomment “AllowOverride All” in httpd.conf. How i can solve this problem, what do you can recommend me?
Not to ask a stupid question but did you uncomment what it said? You will need to open httpd.conf in your text editor (notepad if you have nothing else) and do what the instruction says. Usually commenting will be a # (which makes whatever software ignore that particular line) so remove the one in front of AllowOveride All and save the file and upload it to your website.
You’ll have to forgive me. I try not to make posts when I’m half asleep. I doubt DH’s configurations are what’s wrong since my htaccess files are all working fine and doing what they are supposed to do.
As bitrix seems to be a paid application and I’m not willing to sign up for their demo version it will take me a bit to acquire my own copy for testing purposes. I’ll get back to you and tell you if I was successful installing it or not and what problems (if any) I encountered.
Hmm I was only able to find version 6 and I think their latest version is up to 9 so I don’t know how helpful that would be. Try contacting support to see if there is some issue with the handling of .htaccess files on your domain. If that isn’t the problem though I wouldn’t know what to tell you since I can’t try installing a more current version.
Even if some of the stuff was marked in red the process should still go forward, just some functionality would be lost (as far as what the wizard was saying). Go back and uncheck utf-8 encoding and then it will let you proceed with your database information and such.
To enable UTF-8 options you do need to have .htaccess processing set to ON.
There are some special options for mbstring that need to be processed in .htaccess file.
These options will be created during installation: #php_value mbstring.func_overload 2 #php_value mbstring.internal_encoding UTF-8
Note that you need to uncomment these lines (remove the # sign).
You can find more information in this issue here:
the main problem is I chose plan “Web hosting” (= “Virtual hosting”) -> I don’t not have permission to edit PHP.INI -> I can not uncomment string “AllOverride All” -> status of “.htaccess permission” is “OFF” -> uncommenting of “php_value mbstring.func_overload 2” and “php_value mbstring.internal_encoding UTF-8” HAVE NOT power
Note that there is no issue with UTF-8 using on virtual hosting in case of CMS Joomla 1.5…
php_value doesn’t do anything on DreamHost (unless you’re specifically using mod_php on a DreamHost VPS). See the instructions at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini for details on how to set those two mbstring options.
