    This .htaccess worked on the 7.5.3 server it migrated from, perhaps mod_rewrite is not enabled, how do i find out?

    First try running these commands at the SSH prompt and post the results:

    apachectl -t

    locate mod_rewrite.so

    (Not sure what OS you're on, but should work at least on RH OSs)

    am running on suse 9.1


    t109:/ # /usr/sbin/apache2ctl -t
    Syntax OK

    Check your httpd.conf file to make sure it has a LoadModule statement similar to the following:

    LoadModule rewrite_module mod_rewrite.so

    (I say 'similar' since I am not familiar with Suse)

    in the httpd.conf it referenced /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/loadmodule.conf

    so edited that to include

    LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache2-prefork/mod_rewrite.so (this was in the same file on the 7.5.3 server)

    But when i exit and save and do rcapache2 restart

    i check and the line has dissappeared from the file again.

    figured out how to enable mod rewrite for apache

    edit: /etc/sysconfig/apache2

    and add rewrite into the line of modules.
