yeah ! the specification you have provided here tells you have installed apache with rpm, right ? i guess you really don't have to install anything else.. try to check what modules are there with ur apache, mod_rewrite must be there.

If you've compile apache, the same can achieve by providing option -enable-rewrite.

yast under 9.3 vs 10.1

Stefani,

I am running my host under ubuntu ... but I have another box running Suse 10.1 and I remember that a lot of the functions for apache were accessible with gui tools under 10.1. It might be easier to fix under Suse 10.1 than under 9.3.

Oops. Sorry ..

Good luck. I last played with RedHat 9.0 .. before migrating. When they decided not to support the individual user, I decided to migrate.

I will follow this with interest, however.

I fixed the problem like this.

I added this line to etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf :

Code:
RewriteEngine on
And at he line :

Code:
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
#
<Directory "/var/www/html">

#
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
#   Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
#
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
#
# The Options directive is both complicated and important.  Please see
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#options
# for more information.
#
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

#
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
#   Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
    AllowOverride all

#
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
#
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

</Directory>
I changed:

Code:
    AllowOverride none
To:

Code:
    AllowOverride all
