Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfigurat

Installing Omeka 2.2.2 locally with AppServ I get this error: Internal Server Error: "The server Encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was Unable to complete your request ..." Help, please.
( AppServ 2.5.10 Apache/2.2.8 (Win32) PHP/5.2.6 Server at localhost Port 80 )

Do you have a sense of how far through the installation process it got? For example, when you go to the install page, does that error appear right away, or does it get as far as asking you to enter basic site data like title?

For an error like that coming from the server, you probably have to look around in the server logs to find what went wrong.

No let me begin installation ...

This error may be available in the server error log:

C:/AppServ/www/omeka/.htaccess: Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration


That looks like the mod_rewrite module for Apache might not be installed, or enabled.

Please, any tutorial or step by step to solve this problem ... Thanks!

This is probably a matter for how your server is configured, so it could vary. But, in general, you are looking for your http.conf file and in that looking for a line like this:

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

Make sure it is there, and doesn't have a # in front of it that comments it out
