Problems running mod_rewrite


Hi guys. I have rh 9.0 and am running apache 1.3.27. I want to force all connections to my webserver to be https and read that mod_rewrite works well in this instance. After messing with my httpd.conf file, I finally got my webserver to recognize my .httaccess file (before it was just ignoring it). However, rewrites don't work.

Specifically, I get an internal server error as soon as I even try and include the line

RewriteEngine on

with the message being

Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

So I did some more research and realized that I have to load the module to use it (kinda makes sense, right?). So I included the following three lines

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
ClearModuleList
AddModule mod_rewrite.c

When I try to restart apache, I get

Syntax error on line 479 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/modules/mod_rewrite.so into server: /usr/local/apache/modules/mod_rewrite.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So I did a locate for mod_rewrite.so and found it under /usr/lib/httpd/modules. So I changed the load statement to

LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_rewrite.so

That gave me

Syntax error on line 479 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_rewrite.so into server: /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_rewrite.so: undefined symbol: apr_pool_cleanup_null
./apachectl startssl: httpd could not be started

I also tried using the first loadmodule statement and placing a sym link which gave me the second error. Does anybody know what's up? I installed apache from tarball and I have DSO support. Thanks in advance.

Maybe a different way to ask this question. What are the module dependencies for mod_rewrite?

Rather than include this module in an .htaccess file, have you tried including it in httpd.conf (and if applicable httpd-perl.conf? These lines are located at line 41 and 91 in my httpd.conf file and 40 and 90 in my httpd-perl.conf file. My understanding is that the *order* of inclusion in those represents the dependencies.
