Seeking help on the above.
application involved - apache 2.4.3 and cake 2.3.8
Error message when trying to access cake app - URL rewriting is not properly configured on your server.
I followed the above URL steps but still having the same issue.
/etc/httpd/httpd/conf (already uncommented and AllowOverride All)
LoadModule rewrite_module libexec/apache2/mod_rewrite.so
phpinfo() confirmed that mod_rewrite module was loaded.
There was no error on the httpd error log that tell me anything obvious was wrong beside this URL rewriting.
Note: the same cake application was working on another machine running Slackware 13 and httpd 2.2
Major difference is the httpd version upgrade v2.2 to v2.4.
Appreciate any help or advice.
