Hello, @Samasoul

Mod_Rewrite is compiled with Apache by default on cPanel. However, you can still double-check this with the command KFSyS provided already:

  1. httpd -M | grep rewrite

You can enable it for an account through the .htaccess file with:

  1. RewriteEngine On

Hi @Samasoul,

As far as I know, mod_Rewrite is installed as an Apache module by default.

httpd -M|grep rewrite
 rewrite_module (shared)

If you let me know the script you are trying to install I might be able to further assist you.
