Hi, I just purchased Expresso and ran into an interesting issue installing it.
After installing Expresso, I converted an existing custom field from Textarea to Expresso, In the entry form,the field looked like a plain old textarea—no formatting toolbar. Just to ensure this wasn’t caused by converting an existing field, I created a new test channel with a new custom field group containing an Expresso field with the same result.
Chrome developer tools revealed that requests for ckeditor.js were failing with a 500 server error.
Some digging in the web server logs showed this:
[Fri May 20 11:52:16 2011] [alert] [client 172.17.21.155] /opt/files/ee2site/docs/themes/third_party/expresso/ckeditor/.htaccess: AddType not allowed here, referer: http://eesite3.acponline.orgmanage.php?S=0e96dacfb650a98bce78c0747d764eba414772e6&D=cp&C=content_publish&M=entry_form&channel_id=7
To eliminate this error, you can either copy the contents of the .htaccess file to your Apache configuration, or ensure that AllowOverride FileInfo is set for the themes directory. I added the AllowOverride FileInfo directive.
