ubuntu and .htaccess file

Assalamu Allaikum

It is quite amusing for me to find out that ubuntu’s apache2 does not allow .htaccess override by default

Here is a detailed procedure on how to do this…

Step 1:

First, open the following file using gedit

gksudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

Then Look for the settings


 Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
 AllowOverride None
 Order allow,deny
 allow from all

Change the

AllowOverride None

to

AllowOverride All

Now save and close this file

Step 2:

You can skip this step if you do not require the rewrite module

Open the Console and write the following line

sudo a2enmod rewrite

Step 3

Its just restarting the apache2

sudo service apache2 restart

Now Enjoy the usage of .htaccess in ubuntu.

JazakAllah
