Vanilla and ISPConfig - 500 error fix

edited October 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
First off, this is more of a fix than a question.

Note: This is for the Ubuntu Dapper distro. (Should work for any Debian based ones)

If you use ISPConfig and attempt to install Vanilla on one of the VirtualHosts you will get the following error message:
500 - Internal Server Error
This error stems from the way ISPConfig handles options in .htaccess files. (or rather its lack of handling them)

ISPConfig does NOT allow you to use the .htaccess file to set options. Instead it must be done with a Directory declaration in the VirtualHost declaration of the Apache config file.

Once you have the options added to the declaration, you can then modify the .htaccess file at the root of your Vanilla installation.

Remove the following from the .htaccess file:
Options +FollowSymLinks -Multiviews
After this is done you should be able to finish your Vanilla setup in the normal fashion.
