OK, I've got a couple of issues with my VPS that I've been (so far) unable to solve. I don't have the cash to shell out to rack911 or I would....
Issue # 1: I can't enable mod_rewrite on apache 2. I'm running Suse 10. I edited /etc/sysconfig/apache2 and added 'rewrite' in the list of modules to load when starting. Restarted apache and the URLs most definitely aren't working right. I don't know if maybe the .htacess isn't taking hold or what? I've gone through /etc/sysconfig/apache2 and looked for a section that allows .htaccess files but I didn't find it (I thought that was in the apache config?)
Issue # 2: Mail being sent from the server is failing most of the time. When mail is sent by the forum software, it bounces from most mailservers with a 450 or 451 error. These, I understand, are address verification issues, but I don't know how to solve them. Mail is being sent from email@example.com
and that user has been created. However, the mail is still bouncing.
I would absolutely love to get these issues worked out ASAP as we would like to start a fairly large ad campaign soon...
Any help is appreciated.
