Nothing works cept google

Postby kris7845 » Mon Mar 10, 2008 12:22 pm

I posted a problem I was having in the beginner's area at http://forum.modrewrite.com/viewtopic.php?t=5159 but there is too much spam in there. Anyways, I tried a few of the tutorials to see if mod rewrite is working but no matter what I try nothing works, not even the examples given in the FAQ. I went into httpd.conf and verified it was turned on according to the walk through but after modifying my code to display index.html?id=1 in the urls and I use the code in the tut it still does not work. Any pointers on where to look or what to try to resolve the problem?

I am running xampp on a windows pc if that helps any, sorry I dont know more about this stuff to give more info.

*UPDATE*

Here is the code in my .htaccess file for my latest testing, aside from the addtype it is from the tutorial by richardk (How to change a numeric ID into a name/title. )

AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm
AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^index/([0-9]+)-[^/]+\.html$ /index.php?id=$1 [QSA,L]

*UPDATE 2*

Sigh, not even the google one works, it gives an error 500

*UPDATE 3*

Duh, xampp by default doesn't have mod rewrite installed, I assumed since it was such an important feature with apache that it would have been included. Here is a link to a walkthrough to turn it on in the event anyone ever needs it.
