would anyone have some easy to follow step on how to install mod_rewrite on Ubuntu, its for Drupal 6


it is normally installed with the apache2 package, you only have to enable it:

sudo a2enmod rewrite
  • or you could do it from Synaptic too. – Sairam Feb 11 '10 at 6:18
  • Thanks Christian, you are correct it is installed. but for whatever reason i still can not enable clean url's on drupal. I will ask another question. – freddy6 Feb 12 '10 at 5:44

Don't forget to change virtual host option "AllowOverride" of your Drupal site to:

AllowOverride All
