I am creating a website on localhost using XAMPP under Home windows 7. The web site URL is http://localhost/lyrics. How do i enable url spinning for your subdirectory?
I attempted using the code below however it did not work.
RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /lyrics
Thanks ahead of time.
To begin with, thanks for visiting SO!!
Make zure mod_rewrite is enabled in httpd.conf and add à slash after lyrics:
Wait - so you are carrying this out in development and production mode, also it only works in development ( localhost ) ?
Are you currently depending on virtualhosts or strictly .htaccess? Are you able to make sure a simple fundamental .htaccess rule like ErrorDocument works being produced mode?
Any reason you cannot simply make a VirtualHost for your directory?
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName foo.localhost.com # this needs to be in your hosts file as 127.0.0.1 foo.localhost.com DocumentRoot C:/whatever/lyrics * add your rewrite rules here * </VirtualHost>
