enabling mod_rewrite on apache.

on a basic default apache installation, mod_rewrite doesn’t work by default.
i’ve determined that in all the cases i’ve experienced, it’s because AllowOverride All is not specified (by default, it’s AllowOverride None).
here are other troubleshooting steps to consider (credit to jdMorgan from webmasterworld.com):

  • LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
  • AddModule mod_rewrite.c
  • allowoverride FileInfo Options -or-
  • allowoverride All
  • Options +FollowSymLinks -or-
  • Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch -or-
  • Options All
