[09:17]  * alfredo (alfredo_@190.199.160.102) has joined #foswiki
[09:17]  <alfredo> Hi everybody
[09:19]  <alfredo> I had installed 3 times but I always have to use a workaround to make it work. If I enable the "short urls" option, on the Apache Configurator I always get the following error: http://pastie.org/835988
[09:20]  <alfredo> O I disable this 3 lines and everything works:   Alias / "/var/foswiki/bin/view/"
[09:20]  <alfredo>  RewriteRule ^/+bin/+view/+(.*) /$1 [L,NE,R]
[09:20]  <alfredo>  RewriteRule ^/+bin/+view$ / [L,NE,R]
[09:20]  <alfredo> I just wanted to let people know about this. Maybe one of the developers is online

and from the pastebin

oftware error:

For help, please send mail to the webmaster (webmaster@foswiki), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.

I'm thinking that alfredo's installed foswiki using the debian package, and then used the apacheConfigurator - which is not an expected thing :/ there is a shorterurl config in /etc/foswiki that can be used (ok, so it works for me)

The ErrorDocument is a bad idea in general, when it comes to applying to configure. See also Support.Faq19

-- PaulHarvey - 22 Feb 2010

I think I fixed this in the recent ApacheConfigGenerator. ErrorDocument for configure is now set to "default" which causes it to use the apache default messages.

Also updating the supplied bin/.htaccess.txt to use a "default" document for configure.
