How can I enable Mod-Rewrite Module?

Back

In order to enable Mod_Rewrite for your site you should create a text file called .htacccess in the directory where you wish the rewrite rules to apply.

The first line of this text file should be:


RewriteEngine On


After that you can place your rewrite rules. Here are some examples for Joomla's SEF option:


RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|\.htm|\.php|\.html|/[^.]*)$  [NC]
RewriteRule ^(content/|component/) index.php

Many applications come with ready to use rewrite rules that can be found in a file called htaccess.txt.

 

If you have problems with mod_rewrite, you may ask your web host for assistance. You can always count on Rebel Networks Support for such problems.
