Can Newscoop be installed in a subdirectory?
  • Hello, I am trying to install Newscoop in a subdirectory and I can't seem to get it. All I'm getting is a 500 error. 
    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request." Which of course is not helpful at all.

    I am trying to install it on mediatemple Grid Service. Here: 
    http://mediatemple.net/webhosting/gs/ 

    I have checked the error logs and don't see anything else. 

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • hi,

    which version of newscoop are you installing?
  • Dave,

    If you are trying Newscoop 4.0 any of the RCs then it should work. However, we recently got a report from another user experimenting issues with a rule in the .htaccess file. You can have a look here in our ticket system http://dev.sourcefabric.org/browse/CS-4029

    He reported and offered a solution, it may be the same issue you are having.

    Best,
  • Dave, if you can look at error log file of server. But it seems the problem is with function "FollowSymLinks" in your apache configuration file .htacces. Many hosting providers don`t support this function so you have to replace it with:
    +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    or comment parameter with: 
    #
    Good luck!
  • Yes, and forgot to say that Newscoop 3.5.3 can be installed in subdirectory too.
