Okay this problem has got me stumped. I have a new and fully updated version of 10.4.11 Server on a Dual 1.8 GHz PowerMac G5. For the new version of Typo3 I needed to use PHP 5 so I updated to php PHP/5.2.10 using this tutorial. After a few mistakes and false starts I successfully got PHP 5 up and running. The only problem I have is that not my .htaccess files are being ignored. At first I noticed that mod_rewrite was not working and I initialy thought that it wasn't enabled in the httpd.conf file. While trying to figure out why it wouldn't work, I determined that it was actually the .htaccess file that was being ignored. I checked in the Apache config file at /etc/httpd/httpd.conf and the lines used to activate htaccess are already uncommented by default. How is it that my new php installation somehow caused this change to Apache? Is there another httpd.conf file somewhere that is being used as to the one in the default location? Also I tried this on another machine (Also a PowerMac G5 with 10.4.11) and have the same problem, however, the php5 updater was from entropy.ch I've never had this problem before. Has anybody else? Any tips? I have the feeling I am overlooking something so obvious but I can't figure it out.
