XAMPP Version: 1.7.2
Hello, I've been trying to enable mod_rewrite module to make "clean URLs" available on my website using .htaccess... with no success .
There's many tutorials online, I followed them all, but it isn't working. Most of them have the same steps:
- uncomment the #LoadModule for mod_rewrite in apache http configuration file
- change all instances of AllowOverride None, to AllowOverride All
- restart Apache
I did all this, and when I place my .htaccess file with the mod_rewrite code in my website folder and try to access my website via any browser, it gives me Internal Server Error 500.
I have also noticed that all tutorials online for this use earlier versions of XAMPP, is it possible that in this new release (1.7.2) more changes than usual need to be done in order to enable mod_rewrite???
