My first Drupal install went fine except for a problem with the included .htaccess file. I have to move it out of the way to bet Drupal working normally. If .htaccess is in the drupal directory (/var/www/html/drupal) I get:
Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
The error log reads:
[Sun Apr 23 09:00:40 2006] [alert] [client 188.8.131.52] /var/www/html/drupal/.htaccess: DirectoryIndex not allowed here [Sun Apr 23 09:02:35 2006] [alert] [client 184.108.40.206] /var/www/html/drupal/.htaccess: DirectoryIndex not allowed here
This seems to be a conflict between my Apache config and .htaccess and given enough time I can probably figure it out but has anybody encountered this? Any obvious solution?
