Hi Experts,

I am trying to setup an application on MAMP, my localhost..using Macbook pro...trouble is when i try to access the application, the links are showing e.g. localhost/stayzed/index.php, instead of localhost:8888/stayzed/index.php   ....I got a response from developer saying I should do the following:

As you have mentioned we have shared the steps to the Issue of .htaccess file.

Please enable the mod_rewrite option in your Apache configuration.

If you're already enabled mod_rewrite option please use the below lines,

RewriteEngine ON
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
#RewriteRule .* index.php/$0 [PT,L]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]

in your .htaccess file (Path: root_folder/.htaccess).

Hope the experts can help resolve this.

Regards

Have you tried a2enmod?  If you don't have a2enmod installed with your package, you'll need to edit the service's conf files to include this line somewhere:
LoadModule rewrite_module /path/to/mod_rewrite.so

Open in new window

Chances are, your installation already has a file prepared with this declaration, and it just needs to be enabled.  In Ubuntu/Debian systems, this is accomplished by manipulating the mods-enabled/mods-available directories under Apache's server root - just symlink mods-available/rewrite.conf to mods-enabled/rewrite.conf.

In any case, after you enable the mod, remember to restart Apache.
