How to check whether mod_rewrite is enabled on server?

Our Support team is ready to present a new tutorial that shows how to check if mod_rewrite is enabled on your server.

How to check whether mod_rewrite is enabled on server?
  1. Open your website root directory, create a php file mod_rewrite.php:

    how_to_check__mod_rewrite_enabled_1
  2. Add the following line of code to it:

    		 <?php echo "Mod_rewrite is activated!"; ?>
    		 
    how_to_check__mod_rewrite_enabled_2
  3. Create .htaccess file (rename the original file to .htacess_original if you have it):

    how_to_check__mod_rewrite_enabled_3
  4. Add the following content to the file:

    		 RewriteEngine On
             RewriteRule ^.*$ mod_rewrite.php
    		 
    how_to_check__mod_rewrite_enabled_4
  5. Open your site. If you see a message “Mod_rewrite is activated!”, it is enabled on your server. If you see anything else – mod_rewrite is disabled.

  6. Make sure to delete the .htaccess file you created and rename the original file back:

    how_to_check__mod_rewrite_enabled_5
