Where is the httpd.conf file? How do I edit the httpd.conf

Post by 4x4hwc » Thu Sep 23, 2010 11:27 am

Hello,

I've successfully installed com_sh404sef2_2.1.1.644.zip in Joomla 1.5.19. I've read the instructions below (from the sh404sef component) and my questions are;

Where is the httpd.conf file? I cannot see it in my c-panel.
How do I edit the httpd.conf file?
What do I enter in the httpd.conf file so that I no longer have 404 errors in my website
OR how do I make the mod_rewrite load by PHP? (don't have any php knowledge)

"Remember : if you are having difficulties with this, it is unlikely to be a joomla problem, but most likely something related to your server setup. For instance, many times, you will be faced with 404 errors or Internal server errors 500 display. This indicates that there is something in your .htacces file that is not compatible with your apache server setup.

If you face this kind of errors, I will suggest you contact your hosting company for assistance.
If your .htaccess is not compatible with your apache server, or hosting company, there is no point in trying to use sh404SEF - or any other similar component as they will simply face the same problem. You will have first to fix your installation, paying particular attention to the existence and the content of your .htaccess file. However, one of the first thing to control : verify that mod_rewrite is loaded by PHP. To do this, in Joomla backend, go to Help menu, then System info. On the PHP Information tab, just run a search for the word 'rewrite'. If you don't find anything, then mod_rewrite is not loaded and nothing will work. You need to change your Apache web server httpd.conf file, or contact your system administrator or shared host company to do this for you."

httpd.conf is the Apache configuration file, and you do not have access to it. Only your hoster has. Do the following first:

Thank you for your reply Tonie, I really appreciate it. I'm so close to getting this.

The only thing I found is; url_rewriter.tags.

Does this mean that mod_rewrite is loaded by PHP or not?

If mod_rewrite is not loaded by PHP, how do I load it?

When mod_rewrite is mentioned next to 'Loaded modules', then it is loaded
