How to enable mod_rewrite and mod_speling

To do this, you must understand how to modify and use the .htaccess file. If you need help, feel welcome to contact HostGator so we can walk you through the process.

You must either create a new file and name it ".htaccess", or modify your existing .htaccess file. Place the desired code inside, usually at the top. Each of these codes must have their own line in the .htaccess file!

Mod_Rewrite code:

RewriteEngine On

Mod_Speling code:

CheckSpelling On

Please note that the RewriteMap directive is not enabled on shared servers. It will require a VPS or Dedicated Server plan.
