mod_rewrite compile error

Postby liqweed » 28. May 2004 10:10


How do I activate mod_rewrite on Apache? I'm having problems with URL rewrites in .htaccess file. I keep getting Internal Server Error (500) while trying to access any page. The Apache (v2.0.49) error.log file says:
[alert] [client] C:/Webs/xampp/htdocs/cpg-nuke_cvs/html/.htaccess: RewriteRule: cannot compile regular expression '^([a-zA-Z0-9_=+-\\%]*)\\.html'

which corresponds with the RewriteRule in .htaccess:
Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_=+-\%]*)\.html index.php?name=$1

To get there I uncommented
Code: Select all
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
but I'm not sure that's enough. before I did I used to get:
[alert] [client] C:/Webs/xampp/htdocs/cpg-nuke_cvs/html/.htaccess: Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

The regular expression should be fine, as it's a part of CPG-Nuke code. How do I work this out?

The server I'm running is the XAMPP v1.42 configuration.
