Under CentOS you will find it under


if apache was installed from source you will find it under


By default under apache mod_rewrie is enabled under httpd.conf you will find a line like this

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

you can check with

grep rewrite /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Note: By loading the rewrite module you still need to enable it either from a httpd.conf or from a ,htaccess file

RewriteEngine ON

then continue the rest of its configs
