How to enable mod_rewrite for Apache 2.2

I have a fresh install of Apache 2.2 on my Ubuntu 12.4 machine, everything works fine, except mod_rewrite. I have tried many commands to enable the mod_rewirte in apache 2, but none of my rewrite rules work for me.

After some search on google I found some solution to enable the mod_rewirte in apache 2 in Ubuntu.

In order to use mod_rewrite you can type the following command in the terminal:

 a2enmod rewrite  

Restart apache2 after


 /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
