i'm in the middle of a brand new installation of ProsePoint 0.35 on a new server (BlueHost).  i can't get past the "Configure site" step because the installation thinks that my server does not support clean urls.  according to a BlueHost tech support person and the documentation on the site, the mod_rewrite extension is already enabled by default AND mod_security is NOT running per the PP requirements.  please help!  thank you!

.httaccess file

i'm on a mac and it turns out that it was the "missing" .httaccess file that was the problem... now that this is fixed, somehow my site looks like there is no CSS formatting.  should i open up a separate thread?  http://www.nsfreepress.com/prosepoint-0.35/

sorry for all the questions. i've been desperately trying to move my PP site from one server to another and trying to start with a brand new PP installation on the new server.  and on top of all this i'm a such a newbie to all the backend stuff.  thanks for your help!

Hi,

If you can log into your site, check your status report at .../admin/reports/status, and also clear your site cache.

You are likely to have a filesystems permission issue.

When I try to load the css stylesheet for your site, I get 403 Forbidden.

Hi,

Your status report shows up fine, so this is some sort of filesystem permissions issue. You'd need to ask your hosting provider.

Tell them you are trying to access the link

http://www.nsfreepress.com/prosepoint-0.35/sites/default/files/css/css_7...

but their web server is returning 403 Forbidden and ask them why their web server can't serve that file.

Also, you did clear your site cache, right?

clear site cache
is clearing the site cache the same thing as "flush all caches" in the top admin bar of prosepoint?  or do you mean clearing cache for the browser?

filesystem permissions

i am on LiveChat right now with BlueHost... they said the permissions for the default folder are incorrect.  will check that now.  in the meantime, i have cleared site cache via /admin/settings/performance

will keep you posted.

permissions fixed
ok!  i can see the css now.  BlueHost has informed me that the "default" permissions for that path were incorrect.  i changed the octal values for the folder "default" and "files."  Folders should be 755 and files should be 644.  do you know of anyone else who has run into this before?  i wonder what i did to change the permissions?...  oh well... it's working!  ok.  thanks for your help!  now, i'm going to attempt to move my old database from the GoDaddy server to the BlueHost server.  stay tuned!
