Enabling Apache2 Rewrite Module

After fresh-installing ubuntu 11.10, I have to reinstall my Apache2, PHP5, MySQL, etc… One of the things I should do is enabling the Rewrite Module for my Apache2 web server.

It was simple, just do these steps:

  1. Enabling the physical module.
    sudo ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/rewrite.load /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/
  2. Allow the Overriding, by editing /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default file using your editor. Change the lines containing: AllowOverride from None to All.

  3. The last, restart your apache2 server using:
    $ sudo service apache2 restart

*Update: Add the following code inside your VirtualHost declaration if your redirection couldn’t run properly

<Directory /var/www/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    allow from all

– END – 🙂

* Just to be guide of myself at the future *
