How do I enable mod_rewrite on a hosted account?

Permalink
In my installation grand adventure, that seems to be what's stopping me now.

Is this something I can do myself, or does the host have to do it?

Thanks!

Apache Modules are loaded at server start time and are defined in your apache.conf or httpd.conf file. This is the Apache webserver configuration file.

This file also has an AllowOverride directive, which specifies whether .htaccess files can override the default configs.

So even if mod_rewrite module is loaded, .htaccess files may not be allowed access.

Generally, in a shared hosting environment, the Host has control over this configuration file, but it is the one to ask about.
