  1. I'm trying to get Omeka uninstalled under Leopard. When trying to do the install step from the browser, I get
    Installation Error

    Before installation can continue, the following errors must be resolved:

    mod_rewrite is not enabled

    Apache's mod_rewrite extension must be enabled for Omeka to work properly. Please enable mod_rewrite and try again.

    I verified that I have the line uncommented.

    I noticed in the apache2 console this error:
    File does not exist: /Library/WebServer/Documents/omeka/install/checkModRewrite.html

    I checked and it is true that file doesn't exist. Should it?

    I've seen comments about .htaccess files. I have one in /Library/WebServer/Documents/omeka

    It looks like this
    <IfModule mod_php5.c>
    php_value display_errors 0
    php_flag register_globals off

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d [OR]
    # This ensures that Apache will not mistake the URL for a re
    quest for the physical directory that stores files
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .+\/archive\/
    RewriteRule !\.(js|ico|gif|jpg|png|css)$ index.php

    <FilesMatch "\.(php|ini)$">
    Order Allow,Deny
    Deny from all

    <Files index.php>
    Allow from all

    # Uncomment the lines below in order to enable caching of some files via Apache
    (after a finished site has gone live)
    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
    # <FilesMatch "\.(js|css|gif|png)$">
    # ExpiresActive on
    # ExpiresDefault "access plus 10 day"
    # </FilesMatch>

    Should this file be other places too?

  2. I meant installed not uninstalled. Whoops.

  3. mod_rewrite is a bit of a pain to get working on Leopard. Did you restart Apache after uncommenting the line for mod_rewrite? You have to do that I believe before the changes can take effect. You also need to make sure to change AllowOverride to All.

    I've got a small explanation on my personal wiki -

    Let me know if this helps!

  4. Thanks for replying.
    I did restart apache and have AllowOverride to All.

    I'll take a look at your wiki to see if I missed something.

  5. Ah, there was more than one place that had a line with phrase AllowOverride. I changed the wrong one. Fixed that using your wiki info and I'm going forward again.
