I'd previously installed Omeka 1.0 on my Dreamhost server, but am running into an unexpected problem with Omeka 1.1.
After directly downloading Omeka to the server & unzipping, I am unable to get around a "mod_rewrite not enabled" error. I have confirmed that the .htaccess file is present in the new directory)
Dreamhost claims that mod_rewrite is enabled on all its servers, but runs as a CGI process that is not included in a phpinfo() response. (see http://is.gd/b7AOD)(here's the 1.0 checkModRewrite.html page for the 1.0 install on the same server - http://is.gd/b7BfB)
Has anyone else encountered this problem? Other than commenting out the mod_rewrite test in the install script, other solutions.
