Hi Folks

I’m just doing the read and watch video tutorial bit before trying to use JOJO. I’m no expert on servers, but I noticed when I run the phpinfo script on the domain I want to use... that: mod_rewrite does NOT appear in the list.

E.g.
Loaded Modules
mod_php5, mod_ssl, mod_setenvif, mod_so, mod_frontpage, mod_headers, mod_expires, mod_proxy, mod_auth, mod_access, mod_alias, mod_userdir, mod_cgi, mod_dir, mod_autoindex, mod_include, mod_info, mod_negotiation, mod_mime, mod_log_referer, mod_log_agent, mod_log_config, mod_env, mod_vhost_alias, http_core

However, when I look at the httpd.conf file on the server it includes this:

#VSD Dynamic Shared Object extensions

#LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache/mod_rewrite.so

Do you guys know if that means all is ok, or do I need to contact my host and ask them to install: mod_rewrite

Thanks
Dave

The hash (#) at the start of the line means that it's commented out. To enable the extension you need to remove the hash and restart apache :)

If you can't edit the file itself, you may need to find the apache modules manager or something in your control panel if you're on a shared host.
