I am having real problems getting Omeka to install under OpenSuSE 11.2. I ahve copied all files (including .htaccess), verified via phpinfo() that mod_rewrite is runing, and set the AllowOverides All directive in my Apache2 config file. I did also fix the PHP 5.3 compression error as well, and did a chmod 777 to eliminate all issues with permissions. Of course I checked and my database is working and the ini is set with the correct passwords. I tried several alternatives on the base url in the .htaccess files, none work. Omeka is working on a test server under another OS, but I can't get production running yet.
Is there a clean set of documents with the proper configuration of the Apache2 config file (known working, and known working .htaccess directives (say installed under the document root in an omeka directory)?
Is there any interactive or other help available? I can provide copies of my files, etc. and I am continuing to look at mod_re_write, but it does appear to be active.
Any help will be appreciated as this is a critical blocking issue in the install of a site for a faculty member's research project. I really would welcome know working sample configurations and config files as they could be used to reference against target produciont configurations.
I know this is not supposed to be so hard. As usual, mod_rewrite errors get very difficult to find and fix. If I need to use another PHP version as well please let me know. I am currently at a clean 11.2 64bit install of OpenSuSE 11.2 using all packages from the current default repos for the OpenSuSE project (as vanilla as I can get).
Thanks in advance.
