Mod_rewrite "does not exist" error?

When I

a2enmod rewrite

I get:

ERROR: Module rewrite does not exist

I tried this: http://sharadchhetri.com/2014/02/21/error-module-rewrite-exist/ but no luck.

My Google skills failed to find anything else to help with this. Can anyone help?

  • Are you using the stock version of apache2 installed via apt-get? The rewrite module should be included by default.

Yes, that's what I thought.
