I think MOD_REWRITE is not working correctly

Hiya all

so i was having some issue with my vhosts file which now seem to be fixed but i am now having issues with using mod-rewrite.

the site we are running is joomla and i have enabled the basic mod-rewrite version of SEF inside Joomla and i get a 404 error when ever i go to any pages inside the site, but the homepage loads fine as it does not use teh rewritemod.

So i took it back to basics and used tested thsi example of how to test modReWrite with also did not work http://www.webune.com/forums/viewtopic-p-62.html.

So next i chaechked the httpd.conf to see if teh mod-rewrite is included, which it is. Also inside joomla in teh system info page I can see that mod_rewrite is showing inside  apache2handler > Loaded Modules.

So i am a little stumped!

If you're using the built-in SEF in Joomla, did you already rename the htaccess.txt file in the root directory to .htaccess?

willa666Author Commented:
Hiya thomasd04 yes i changed the filename, also i downloaded a fresh version of joomla to get another copy of the htaccess.txt to use.

So, I see you have access to the httpd.conf file.
Make sure this is uncommented
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

Open in new window


Also find AllowOverride which should be appears 2 or 3 times and make sure the value is All
AllowOverride All

Open in new window


Let me know...

checked  httpd.conf and this line is in it and IS uncommented

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

Open in new window


as for "AllowOverride All" should this be in the Vhost direive for teh site or in the httpd.conf?
