All I am trying to do is get mod_rewrite to work on turnkey linux and so far having no luck.

  1. I went to the webmin under apache > configure apache modules > I checked rewrite and saved ( I looked to see if it was and is )
  2. I check my phpinfo file and under Loaded Modules. It is there.
  3. Uploaded a new .htaccess file to my directory /var/www/projects/jsnew/.htaccess
The contents of the htaccess are:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^index.php$ about_us.php

I should be seing about_us page with inde.php url and I am not.

Is there anything else I need to do from with in webmin?

nah I tried that and still doesnt work. There has to be something else here that isn't allowing mod_rewrite to work. Are there any other config files?
