Running Forum. enable mod rewrite in xampp.
and solve all you errors.
apache uses htaccess’ to protect directories.
I find the default installation of xampp a bit of lacking it.
Thought it’s only because I do have with me the lite version of it (xampplite).
But I have with me a full installed xampp better yet check it.
So I did a little poking into configuration file of apache that came bundled with it.
This is what I found out. By default mod_rewrite module is not enabled by default so I took the following steps.
To enable mod_rewrite in xampp first go to the directory of installation <xampp-directory>\apache\conf and edit httpd.conf. Find the line which contains
#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
uncomment this(should be):
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
Also find AllowOverride None
