mod_rewrite issues on new install of Vanilla 2.0.16

edited December 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
My site is at: hosted by UnitedHosting. I don't know the Linux version. It's a brand new untouched (vanilla... groan) install. I have not imported any legacy data. My server meets all the requirements -
I have set permissions on upload, cache, and config folders to 777.

Clicking on the first discussion I get errors:

I have a standard .htaccess:

# Original
# If you modify this file then change the above line to: # Modified

RewriteEngine On
# Certain hosts may require the following line.
# If vanilla is in a subfolder then you need to specify it after the /.
# (ex. You put Vanilla in /forum so change the next line to: RewriteBase /forum)
#RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]

And I'm getting these errors in the log:

mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming configuration error. Use 'RewriteOptions MaxRedirects' to increase the limit if neccessary.

php-script: line 8: 5170 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/php-cgi, referer:

Premature end of script headers: php-script, referer:

HELP! I love Vanilla - looks much better than phpBB but if I can't get it working it's going to have to be phpBB.

    That 500 error is sometimes caused by file permissions. Be sure to set the proper file permissions. Most likely 757.

    On which files should these be set? Is it not something to do with mod_rewrite? The urls are not "friendly" as they are on the site.

    Hi Craig. Did you get anywhere with this seg fault? I'm also struggling with this on a UnitedHosting box too.

    Might have to start writing a vanillaforum to phpBB script soon as well :(

    Hi Baz, no I didn't get anywhere. You?
