mod_rewrite rule

How do I activate the mod_rewrite rule for .htaccess (RewriteUrl)? I've heard I need to set something in httpd.conf but i'm not sure what. Help, please?

You need to uncomment this line:
#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

To this:
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

Then in your .htaccess file you need to turn on the rule:
RewriteEngine on

Then you usually add the RewriteBase Directive:
RewriteBase /

Then below this add your rules.

Thanks, i've done what you said but then when I stop apache and then try to start it again I get this error:


I've done exactly as you've said and I can't figure out why it's doing this.
