Drupal Clean URLs

  • Posted December 30, 2013


I’m trying to have Clean URLs working properly, but seems that the Apache2 is doesn’t have Rewrite module enabled.

I have the .htaccess file in the /var/www/ where is my website, when I run the Clean URLs test, it doesn’t work.

I followed this article:

My Apache2 file is in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf I inserted the <Directory> property but the Clean URLs still not working.

Who has Drupal and Clean URLs enabled, please help :)

Thanks in advance! Fábio


Check php_info(); if it lists mod_rewrite and focus on enabling that if it doesn’t. Find below line in httpd.conf and uncomment it - keep in mind that the structure might be little different, just search for mod_rewrite. LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

Also check in .htaccess that you have proper RewriteBase set in your case to /
