I totally new to Mambo / php / webserver admin, so pleae bare with me.
I'm want to know if I can enable mod_rewrite on my shared
hosting? I want to make sure it will work with Dreamhost before I mess with anything.
If so, is it best done through the DreamHost admin or through my Mambo admin? I see the option to enable "Search Engine Friendly URLs" in the Mambo admin, but it says that I need to change the "htaccess.txt" file to ".htaccess" file before I can enable it. I just want to make sure that this is an okay thing to do before I mess up my whole Mambo installation.
And once I do change the .htaccess and enable it in the Mambo admin, is that it? will Mambo take care of the rest or are there some other scripts that I need to manally add to the file.
I'm also running Gallery2 as an embedded component and I'm wondering how that might be effected with enabling mod_rewrite?
