  5. Paste your database settings into settings.json

    For thoses who are using pretty URL rewriting for serving EPL, if you encounter a situation where etherpad lite hangs at the “Loading…” stage, add the following at the appropriate place of your apache configuration:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/pluginfw/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/javascripts/

    It helped me.

    Stupid Question: How do I find out which version of etherpad-lite I have installed / is running ?
    Reason: I’m trying to use the ruby client library and it fails with:

    >>Error while talking to the API (405: Only the HEAD or GET methods are allowed.). Make sure you >>are running the latest version of the Etherpad Lite server.

    ep-lite console:
    >>[2012-08-23 11:07:50.158] [INFO] http – 405, POST //api/1/createPad

    I checked out etherpad-lite using:
    $git clone -b releases-1.1.1 https://github.com/Pita/etherpad-lite.git
    $git pull
    >>Already up-to-date.

    According to https://github.com/jhollinger/ruby-etherpad-lite/blob/master/CHANGELOG:#3 “* Requires Etherpad Lite 1.1+”

    Any help would be appreciated.
