My .htaccess conflicts with the config of XAMPP.
Error message on Apache server:
[Fri Apr 11 20:37:48 2008] [alert] [client 127.0.0.1] F:/xampp/htdocs/testapp/.htaccess: Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
I uncommented the line:
# LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
in httpd.conf but it still doesn't work.
