Hi,


I am having xampp installed on my windows xp service pack 3 machine.i am trying to do the url rewrting on local system in .htaccess file.but there is no output of the url rewriting.

So i want to know, is url rewriting possible on windows having apache webserver installed?

Please help me.

this is my .htaccess file.

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule product/categoryid/(.*)/productid/(.*)/ product.php?categoryid=$1&productid=$2
RewriteRule product/categoryid/(.*)/productid/(.*) product.php?categoryid=$1&productid=$2

]

and url that i want to rewrite is

product.php?categoryid=1&productid=10


Thanks

It is a simple setting in your C:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file. So first copy the file at that location for a backup. Then load the file at C:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf in notpad to do the following modifications.
1 - Uncomment the following line by removing the # symbol

#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

change above to below

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

Then replace all instances of AllowOverride None to AllowOverride All
