Hi babyit,

If you mean the activation of mod_rewrite its not an issue. This module is an optional apache module, not all servers require this functionality so you can turn it on and off as required.


To enable the mod_rewrite using the wampmanager menu system:

left click the wampmanager icon ( thats the W icon that sits in the system tray, usually bottom right of your screen )

wampmanager -> Apache -> Apache modules -> and click the line [rewrite_module] if it is not ticked
You may have to scroll the menu down to find rewrite_module


Alternatively you can manually edit the httpd.conf file

left click wampmanager -> Apache -> httpd.conf

This will open that file in notepad and you can locate the line
#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
and remove the comment symbol '#' to activate the module. Then save the file and restart Apache to activate this change.
