Enabling Mod-Rewrite for Apache Webserver on Linux Ubuntu

Sunday March 2nd, 2014 | by PhilVanB | de_DE Dieser Artikel auf deutsch


Mod-Rewrite is a software-modul for the Apache webserver. It's basically used in webdevelopment to modify the appearence of a web URL. That way an URL for example becomes search engine friendly:

http://example.com/index.php?title=page-title

could be rewritten as:

http://example.com/page-title

 

Now, to use Mod-Rewrite run the following command in the terminal:

 

sudo a2enmod rewrite

 

Then open the apache2 config file named default with an editor of your choice:

 

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

 

Go to the line where it says /var/www/ “AllowOverride None” and change it to “AllowOverride All”. Last but not least restart the Apache Webserver:

 

service apache2 restart

 

That’s it! Now you should be able to use Mod-Rewrite
