    Fatal Error.

    An unrecoverable error has occurred and has been logged. Contact the site administrator with the following information:

    That override issue is not resolving

    there are 3 types of override in http.conf and 2 of them are set to NONE

    What do you mean it’s integrated with Mediawiki? I cannot find a current plugin that does that.

    Hi,

    I tried to install elgg, in a subfolder of my website. I named the subfolder as “ncc” and have extracted all the files from the folder elgg to my subfolder “ncc”.

    When I try to install by going to my url ncc.yourgoal.in/install.php I get an error as mentioned below.

    “Web server
    We think your server is running the Apache web server.

    The rewrite test failed and the most likely cause is that AllowOverride is not set to All for Elgg’s directory. This prevents Apache from processing the .htaccess file which contains the rewrite rules.

    A less likely cause is Apache is configured with an alias for your Elgg directory and you need to set the RewriteBase in your .htaccess. There are further instructions in the .htaccess file in your Elgg directory.”

    I have checked the .htaccess file but couldn’t understand what I have to do there. Please help me on how to install elgg

      In Apache httpd.conf file, change “AllowOverride None” to “AllowOverride All” and restart Apache service, it will fix this issue.
