    Question how to get Modrewrite to work?


    I am trying to get ModRewrite to work on an Apache server (Apache/2.0.36 (Unix) PHP/4.2.2), my .htaccess looks like this:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule /test/(.*).htm /test.htm?testVar=$1

    I think this is all correct, but when I copy the .htaccess over to my server I get:

    ----------------

    Server error!
    Error message:
    /home/testsite/www/.htaccess: Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster
    Error 500

    --------------------

    What am I missing? Does the http.conf need anything added to it to get it to work?

    Thank you,

    JRM

    You have got the mod rewrite module correctly installed?

    How do I verify that the ModRewrite module it installed? And how do I do that? Would an admin have to do that?

    Thank you,
