Drupal, clean URLs, mod_rewrite

I successfully, manually installed Drupal 6.6. Everything’s working fine except for the Clean URLs. When I go to enable Clean URLs the Drupal radio buttons are disabled and the page shows an error message: “Your system configuration does not currently support this feature.”

The Drupal documentation says that Clean URLs requires apache mod_rewrite. I thought that mod_rewrite was installed by default on all shared plans.

Any suggestions?

(If it’s any help, I wasn’t able to update .htaccess with Drupal’s version.)

Could you expand on that a bit?

I figured it out. I couldn’t upload “.htaccess”. So, all within Filezilla, I renamed the file to “copy.htaccess”, uploaded and renamed renamed back to “.htaccess”.

Uploading Drupal’s version of .htaccess (the one that ships with Drupal) fixed my Clean URL problems.

Ahh nice. Good stuff :wink:
