Apache2 and .htaccess problem
Causing 500 error

I've recently installed Apache2 and am running it off the distributed httpd.conf files (including some of the extras) but it's causing errors with some .htaccess files:

- Rewrites do not work
- Limits and auths cause 500 errors

Any ideas to where I can enable/disable bits and bobs in the httpd.conf or to find some good ones?

Take a look at "AllowOverride" and "Options" settings in httpd.conf, and check against the Apache documentation.

For example, you need AllowOverride Limit if you want to use mod_access. Note that many individual Apache directives specify what Overrides are needed if you want to use them:
Allow directive

Syntax: Allow from allŠhostŠenv=env-variable [hostŠenv=env-variable] ...
Context: directory, .htaccess
Override: Limit
Status: Base
Module: mod_access

Also, review your server error log -- It will often tell you the exact problem.
