EasyPHP 3 and mod_rewrite gotchas

Just got a new server in the office so updated to the latest EasyPHP – version 3. However, all was not smooth:

  1. At first I kept getting a “permission denied” error – you’ll need to search the httpd.conf file for the <Directory /> container and get rid of Deny from all. (Or at least comment it out, anyway.)
  2. The mod-rewrite wouldn’t work. Two steps to fix this:
    1. Search httpd.conf for mod_rewrite and uncomment the LoadModule line.
    2. Search for AllowOverride. There should be two instances where you need to change None to All. (Source)

Now I can get back to work!
