How to Enable Mod_Rewrite Module

In order to enable Mod_Rewrite for your site you should create a text file called .htacccess in the directory where you wish the rewrite rules to apply.

The first line of this text file should be:

RewriteEngine On

After that you can place your rewrite rules. Here are some examples for WordPress's default htaccess:

RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Many applications come with ready to use rewrite rules that can be found in a file called htaccess.txt. If you have problems with mod_rewrite, you may contact our support desk from your client area.
