Dear all,

How to turn ON mod_rewrite? I'm on localhost

I use MS4W
PHP Version 5.3.5
DOCUMENT_ROOT C:/ms4w/Apache/htdocs

What I did is I removed the comment in:


#LoadModule reqtimeout_module modules/
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
LoadModule setenvif_module modules/
#LoadModule speling_module modules/

but still, when I install SilverStripe, I get

Webserver Configuration All Requirements Pass but 1 Warning
URL rewriting support You need mod_rewrite to use friendly URLs with SilverStripe, but it is not enabled.

Any idea?

Again... I got it.

I was right with the configuration but I had to change the AllowOverride None to AllowOverride All in the Options Indexes FollowSymLinks.
Then I did a fresh install of SilverStripe.

Thank you anyway...
