I'm trying to install 8.0 RC4 on CentOS6 with Apache2.2.15 and I'm being stopped by this error message:
Apache/2.2.15 The minimum version of Apache needed to run Drupal without mod_rewrite enabled is 2.2.16. See the enabling clean URLs page for more information on mod_rewrite.
I've made sure to have this on httpd.conf: AllowOverride All
And mod_rewrite is in fact being loaded correctly. I tried httpd -M | grep rewrite and I get: rewrite_module (shared)
I even tried copying the htaccess sample into httpd.conf. I restart apache, and I always still get the same error. Does Drupal 8 simply not support this version of Apache? Could it be the fact that I'm accessing the site via the server's IP rather than a host name?
I tried upgrading to Apache 2.4 but that was an ordeal since the package manager doesn't provide it and the end result gave me even more problems.
Edit: I've installed a wordpress site and tried using SEO friendly URLs, everything works fine. Clearly mod_rewrite has to be working.
