I can't get past the mod_rewrite issue

    Hello, loving the software but can't get the webview and unsubscribe links to work. I've scoured the forum for answers, trying out your suggestions such as the .htaccess fix (http://forum.sendy.co/discussion/5/404-error-after-install/p1), set AllowOverride to All, installed openssl, and of course made sure mod_rewrite was enabled.

    Still, I get nothing. I'd be so stoked if you have any suggestions. I'm on Sendy 1.1.6.3 and running Ubuntu 12.10.

    Hi Steve,

    This can be fixed by making sure AllowOverride None is changed to AllowOverride All in Ubuntu so that htaccess is not ignored by Ubuntu. Follow the instructions on this post http://www.joeldare.com/wiki/linux:using_.htaccess_on_ubuntu

    Also don't forget to restart Apache after applying the change.

    Thanks.

    Ben

    Ben, I already did that without any luck. I felt like I've tried all the solutions in the forum.

    Hi Steve,

    All users who are on Ubuntu had the same problem and had their issue fixed by changing AllowOverride None to AllowOverride All.

    I SSH'd into a user's server yesterday and did the same thing and it fixed the exact same issue.

    Change all the AllowOverride None you can find in httpd.conf to AllowOverride All. Then restart apache. That will certainly work. In fact that is the only solution for Ubuntu to not ignore the .htaccess file.

    I hear what you're saying, but like I stated in my initial post, I've done all of that.

    Hi Steve,

    Send me an email at hello at sendy dot co with your SSH key so that I can access your server.

    Also send me your Sendy URL, email and password.

    Thanks.

    Ben
