    I saw the list of recommended hosts, appreciate that.

    I was burned earlier when I purchased a similar script only to find out it wouldn't accept the password requirements GoDaddy hosting has for database passwords (ie, a capital letter must be included).

    Is aMember 100% compatible with GoDaddy hosting? If so, you're about to have a new customer...

    Thanks in advance,

    Problem with new_rewrite folder protection on GoDaddy

    I have just installed aMember on a godaddy shared server. all appears to be working well - except the only option available to me from the amember folder protection page is htpasswd.

    new_rewrite (my prefered method) is greyed out with the comment "RewriteRule doesn't work in .htaccess files on this server"

    According to the godaddy help it should work:

    --start godaddy help article--

    Mod_rewrite is an Apache web server module installed on all of our Linux severs by default; it does not have to be installed or enabled. Our Linux hosting accounts support most mod_rewrite functionality.

    You will not need to enable mod_rewrite in your httpd.conf, as this is handled at a global level. All you will need to do is add the desired code to the body of your .htaccess file.

    --end godaddy help article--

    Has anyone come across this problem?


    Thanks

    Hi,
    We too are using a Godaddy shared server. Although not getting the "new_rewrite" option greyed out we are getting the message "Unable to fetch result of test from ..."
    There's a FAQ about this where it says "Go to aMember Cp -> Setup/Configuration , and try to set "cURL path" configuration value. Try to set it to "/usr/bin/curl" and press Save. If you don't see red error message in the top of screen, it means that configuration saved successfully and problem is resolved. Try to run aMember CP -> Protect Folders again.
    If you see red error message (about not-working curl), contact your webhosting support and ask them to install cURL PHP extenstion or install command-line version of cURL and send you path to cURL executable."

    I'm probably being stupid but I can't find where to set the "cURL path" configuration value under Setup/Configuration. Anybody know where to find this?

    Amember has only recently been installed on our site so I was supposing it was an installation problem. I have put a support ticket in.
