http://stackoverflow.com – I'm trying to enable the rewrite function in drupal 7 without using the .htaccess file since it should only be used if you do not have root access to the server (accordingly to apache's website) Without any further adieu, here is my configuration <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName www.example.com ServerAlias example.com DirectoryIndex index.php DocumentRoot /var/www/example.com/public ErrorDocument 404 /index.php LogLevel warn ErrorLog /var/www/example.com/log/error.log CustomLog /var/www/example.com/log/access.log combined <Directory "/var/www/example.com/public" (HowTos)
