How to enable Apache mod_rewrite and mod_headers in Ubuntu server?

Posted under » Ubuntu » Apache updated on on 05 April 2020

You have to install it like this.

$ sudo a2enmod rewrite
$ sudo a2enmod headers

The above are necessary for CMS like CakePhp

You can enable mod proxy and mod ssl (probably already enabled) this way too.

$ sudo a2enmod proxy

To see the list of apache mods that are enabled

$ apache2ctl -M

This old method might work to

ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/proxy.load /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/proxy.load

The Apache config needs to enable writting too.

But don't forget to restart Apache.
