AllowOverride Not Working – CodeIgniter

I'm attempting to figure out why it is that my .htaccess file isn't working - I'm assuming that I am somehow configuring my 000-default.conf incorrectly.


<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName ****.********.me
        ServerAdmin [email protected]
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride All

        <Directory /var/www/html>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride All

        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined


RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|css|img|js|libs|robots\.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

/html is a symlink to /www in my CodeIgniter project. I have removed 'index.php' from $config['index_page'], and the front page of the site loads without any issue. It is when I attempt to access any other page on the site that the issue arises (they will not load unless I add index.php to the beginning of each). I also ran sudo a2enmod rewrite, to no avail. I have also restarted the apache2 service during all of my attempts at fixing the issue. Any ideas?

Virtual Env permission denied

When running the website I get code 500, ant eh output in the apache files at the bottom.

I have changed permissions to have the appache user own the files, and even recursivly chmod 777 all files located in the virtualenv environment.

I can't make any sense of it. I've found a few points of documenation and already attempted what they have done. No success with changing permissions.

Directory showing apache owns the file:

www ServerAlias not working Apache2 [on hold]

I am trying to set up my tornado web application to run behind Apache2. The application listens on port 8888, and I am trying to get Apache to forward HTTP requests for the specified domain to this port. Here is my config file:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin [email protected]

    ProxyPreserveHost On

    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /

    ErrorLog /var/log/domain.error.log
    LogLevel warn
    CustomLog /var/log/domain.log combined
    ServerSignature Off

Navigating to works, but if I try to navigate to, I get Error code: ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Mac OS X macports Apache running wrong version (Yosemite)

sudo apachectl start

Also localhost is not accessible.

How can i config xampp so it will not cause the exception too many automatic redirections were attempted on my c# application?

After a long time i found that what cause the exception too many automatic redirections were attempted on my c# application was the xampp that was running in the background. I need to use the xampp so i wonder how can i config it maybe so it will not disturb the c# application.

I have xampp Version 3.2.1 when i make start on the apache i see:

PID(s)    Port(s)
6136      80,443

My program on csharp using simple WebClient to download a file each X minutes. In the last week or so i had a problem every time i got an exception: too many automatic redirections were attempted in my csharp application.

Now today about an hour ago once i clicked on stop in the xampp to stop the apache everything in the csharp application is working fine no more this exception: too many automatic redirections were attempted.

The question is how can i run both xampp and my cshap application so they will not conflict ?

How can I use .htaccess to change url

I would like to do this with an .htaccess file. Is this possible or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Sending redirect in oc4j web application behind a Apache 2 proxy (mod_proxy)

I have two web applications (ADF) deployed on OC4J container http://server:8181/app1 and http://server:8181/app2

I have configured an Apache 2 (mod_proxy) to act as reverse proxy offloading SSL. Thus the users will access the app over https://server/app1 which will serve the content from oc4j web app url above.

ProxyPreserveHost off
ProxyPass / http://server:8181/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8181/

The app1 has a redirect of form sendRedirect("../app2") which works fine when accessing the oc4j server directly. When accessing over Apache, the redirect results in the following url in my browser http://app2. Notice the protocol is now changed to http and server name is missing.

Is there a way to fix this without causing a change in application code?
