Install step gets error starting Apache after Include foswiki.conf

After I add the Include foswiki.conf in my httpd.conf, I get the error below re-starting Apache.

Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

Thanks, Rick

the best choice is to add or install apache's mod_rewrite - then it will 'just work'

if thats not an option, you'll need to remove those portions of the foswiki.conf - as your apache setup doesn't support them.

Editing httpd.conf remove the # in front of -> LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
and now I get past that error code.

In my next installation step, I try to execute configure.pl and I get:

[Tue Jan 13 09:25:00 2009] [error] [client 10.71.225.72] (OS 3)The system cannot find the path specified. : couldn't create child process: 720003: configure.pl
[Tue Jan 13 09:25:00 2009] [error] [client 10.71.225.72] (OS 3)The system cannot find the path specified. : couldn't spawn child process: D:/Foswiki/bin/configure.pl

I can see D:/Foswiki/bin/configure.pl and that location is correct. Perhaps there is something inside D:/Foswiki/bin/configure.pl that must be updated?

It now looks like the shebank/hashbank line won't work. Instead of #!/usr/bin/perl, I changed configure.pl and view.pl:

#!C:/Perl/bin/perl.exe
#####/usr/bin/perl -wT

So now I startup configure and made changes as described in install doc but when I go to view.pl, any selection gets an error like:

The requested URL /foswiki/bin/view/Sandbox/WebHome was not found on this server.

The requested URL /foswiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome was not found on this server.

So the view.pl functionality is not working. Any suggestions?

Is there anyone familiar with implementing foswiki on windows who can help me with this?

-- RickZoll - 14 Jan 2009

I think the change listed below solved my problem.
