I'm just installing SS on a clients server, they seem to have a pretty bare set up, without much installed - no control panels etc. I managed to set up the database using SSH, but it seems the host server hasn't got mod_rewrite installed.
I have never installed a module on a server before - so I need a wee bit of help
is it easy - can I do it through SSH?
is is risky - I can't afford to screw up their server as their others sites are still live
do I have to restart apache - will this take long (again, never done this myself) will it take their existing sites off line?
In the meantime, I'll keep going with build the site - it just look a bit rubbish with the index.php/home/ etc in the link....

"sudo a2enmod rewrite" should get the rewrite module enabled for Apache on Ubuntu.
You will need to get "AllowOverride All" setup in the Apache configuration as well to enable rewriting.

You may also have to enable the module, do sudo a2enmod rewrite if this is the case

I got this working, as suggested, I had "sudo a2enmod rewrite" to enable the module, then restart apache.
Still nothing worked - then I realized .htaccess wasn't working, so had to enable that too
all now works...
