I have been using XAMPP for some time now to test dynamic php sites on a local test server, installed on a computer using Windows XP. It all works well.
However, now I would like to use Mod Rewrite to rewrite URL's on local sites, for testing before upload to live sites. That's the problem.
I have been into httpd.conf and httpd.default.conf and enabled the rewrite module in both, shut down and restarted the server, but all I get now for the sites with URL Rewriting via .htaccess are 500 errors.
The error logs tell me that 'RewriteEngine On' is not known or mis-spelled.
Someone here must have had this problem themselves, so any help/advice would be appreciated.
Many Thanks - Vger
