I'm migrating one of my websites from dreamhost shared to dreamhost ps. the files copied OK and DNS resolved to the new server. However trying to get a pagw brings error 403 access forbidden.
If I remove the .htaccess file from the directory of the site. the homepage loads OK but naturally any other page does not (because it requires rewriting currently defined in .htaccess).
I believe that httpd.conf blocks usage of .htaccess in the new server. quote:
<Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order deny,allow Deny from all </Directory>
I tried removing htaccess and implementing the rewrite rules in httpd.conf. without success.
My questions: 1. I tried AllowOverride All to make .htacces work. It didn't change anything. What else should be checked/done to make it work?
I created a directory section in httpd.conf with the directory in which the httpdocs sit and put all the rewrite rules there. (and restarted the server). it didn't have effect. Any hints on what should be done to add directory part with rewriterules to .httpd.conf and troubleshooting tips?
How can I check if mod-rewrite is working on this server? It is enabled on the httpd.conf file. The server is on fastcgi mode.
Any other tips are very appreciated.
How can I move the rewrite rules in .htaccess in httpd.conf (and make it work)
