  • mod_rewrite is not being loaded, because is doesn’t appear in phpinfo()
    Why it is not being loaded?

    Is there any problem with mod_rewrite under Apache for Windows?

    My httpd.conf is
    LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
    AddModule mod_rewrite.c

    what’s wrong with it?
    There is a file maned in modules folder

    Thanks in advance.

  • Try editing the .htaccess file and putting something in that will definitely cause an error, and see if apache throws one. If it doesn’t, then you need to edit your apache.conf, because apache is probably using a different name for the .htaccess file.

    Change this line to:
    AccessFileName .htaccess

    Ethilien: it works!!
    I’ve changed override from none to all

    Thanks a lot!
