Safari SVG Sprite Issue

Few days back, my team faced an issue with svg sprites not working in Safari browser. Tried number of options to make it work but in vain. Finally from some post(don't remember page url) we found this solution and it worked like a charm!! :)

CakePHP: JS and CSS files are not loading

When I faced this issue with one of my projects and searched over the internet, out of the suggested solutions, nothing worked. Anyhow, with some luck and R&D, I was able to fix this issue. Hence, sharing it with a larger group to help others who are or will face the same issue as mine. 

If apache is your web server and your CakePHP project is in /var/www/html/ folder then please make sure that AllowOverride All enabled for /var/www/html

To enable AllowOverride All for /var/www/html following is an example for /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf


<VirtualHost *:80>
        # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
        # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
        # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
        # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
        # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
        # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
        # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
        #ServerName www.example.com

        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
        # error, crit, alert, emerg.
        # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
        # modules, e.g.
        #LogLevel info ssl:warn

        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

        # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
        # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
        # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
        # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
        # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
        #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf
        <Directory "/var/www/html">
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
            AllowOverride All
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
        </Directory>


</VirtualHost>
