I've practically been pulling my hair out the last 4 days. Tried every which way possible to write some htaccess files for CS.......not 1 worked. First I would receive a 404 error when checking the websites for the cookie. Now I'm getting a 500 error. I'm really not great at this, but I finally found out from a lot of reading that my directories may not have been set right to allow access to htaccess files. I finally got my default off of sql changed to sql5, and changed a few permissions, then found the directory htaccess files. I've got the public_html files to allowoverride, but now the error tells me that my home/***myname/.htaccess 'AllowOverride not allowed here'. I know I changed that htaccess file to AllowOverride. Maybe I didn't put it in the right sequence, or need to add something else to it? Knowledge would be greatly appreciated!
