URl rewriting not working

  • Posted March 23, 2014

I have an existing website that runs under Joomla 3.3 (Apachec, Mysql, PHP) with an existing host. I have taken a backup (with Akeeba) and am porting it over to a cloud server with Zpanel (testing/learning the cloud server). I can install the backup copy to the server and can access the admin side and the home page.

The basic site has URL rewriting on (using mod_rewrite and .htaccess).

With this ported over version I get the home page fine, but when I try to view any other page I get a NOT FOUND error.

If I turn the URL rewriting OFF in the Joomla admin panel then the site works correctly.

This is not a live site yet.

I have same problem how to resolve

Hey bro, i followed you but still .htaccess not work. sudo a2enmod rewrite Module rewrite already enabled

i use Ubuntu 14

Hello. <br> <br>First check if your mod_rewrite is enabled by running the following command in your console: <br> <br>sudo apache2ctl -M <br> <br>This command should list all your loaded modules. <br>If the module is not enabled and loaded, which I presume happens, just run the next two commands in your terminal: <br> <br>sudo a2enmod rewrite <br>sudo service apache2 restart <br> <br>These commands should enable the rewrite module and restart your apache webserver. <br> <br>Let me know if it helped.
