I have this error when trying to browse php files locally
[Fri Apr 13 19:16:40 2012] [alert] [client 127.0.0.1] C:/AppServ/www/hr-website/.htaccess: Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration, referer: http://127.0.0.1/
what is the problem ?
or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
Check to make sure you have
- Find the httpd.conf file (usually you will find it in a folder called conf, config or something along those lines)
- 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)
- Also find the line ClearModuleList is uncommented then find and make sure that the line AddModule mod_rewrite.c is not commented out.
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so line is missing from the httpd.conf file entirely, just add it.
To enable the module in a standard ubuntu do this:
a2enmod rewrite systemctl restart apache2
