    Enable mod_rewrite

    1. Find the httpd.conf file (usually you will find it in a folder called conf, config or something along those lines)
    2. Inside the httpd.conf file uncomment the line LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so (remove the pound '#' sign from in front of the line)
    3. Also find the line ClearModuleList is uncommented then find and make sure that the line AddModule mod_rewrite.c is not commented out.


    Check to see if mod_rewrite is enabled

    There are several ways to check if its working, I will try to show you the simplest method, Create a .htaccess file (a text file named .htaccess) with the following code in it

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine On

    Save the file to a subdirectory of your main site something like this
    /rewrite-testfolder/.htaccess

    Now attempt to browse to the subdirectory (http://localhost/rewrite-testfolder/). One of two things could happen

    - No errors Congrats mod_rewrite engine is now enabled.

    - 500, Internal Server Error If you get this message then mod_rewrite was not installed/enabled on your computer.
