how to enable mod_rewrite in apache2.2 (debian/ubuntu)

July 15th, 2007 323 comments

Here i am going to describe how to enable mod_rewrite in apache2.2 -specaily for debian.

In default installion of apache2.2 on debian never enable mod_rewrite default. So you may need to enable .

First install the apache2.2 with this command :
debian user please use “su” before start this process
ubuntu user please use “sudo su” before start this process

apt-get install apache2 (it will install apache 2.2)

on current debian system you can enable mod_rewrite with simple command

a2enmod rewrite

old style, you can skip this portion

now use locate to find if the is availble on your server


it will found in “/usr/lib/apache2/modules”

new apache follow some folders to enable and disable mods.
so now do this:

cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
touch rewrite.load
gedit rewrite.load (you may use any editor to edit this file)

now paste this following line

LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/

end of old style

Then edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default or /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default (check which one available on your system)

Find the following

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

and change it to

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride all
Order allow,deny
allow from all

and finally restart Apache

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
service apache2 restart

OK, you done 😀

বাংলা পিএইচপি বই

June 25th, 2007 17 comments

গত কাল এক বন্ধুর জন্য পিএইচপিএর বাংলা বই কিনতে গিয়েছিলাম নিলক্ষেত। কিন্তু বইয়ের অবস্থা দেখে খালি হাতেই বাড়ি ফিরলাম। কি আর বলব তাদের বইয়ের কোয়ালিটি। মোট 2 টি বই পেয়েছিলাম। 1তম টায় দেখলাম পিএইচপি আর মাই এসকিউল ইনেস্টলশেন করতে করেতই অর্ধেক বই শেষ বাকিটা যা্ষ্ট ম্যানোয়ালের ট্রানসলেশন। আর দ্বিতীয় বইটিতে দেখলাম যা আলোচনা করা দরকারঁ তার সম্প্রর্কে খুব কমই লিখেছে। শুধু আজে বাজে কথায় ভর্তি।

আমি খু্বই হতাশ হলাম। চিন্তা করছি সময় করতে পারলে একবার চেষ্টা করে দেখব, একটা পিএইচপি বই লেখতে পারি কিনা যা দিয়ে যে কোন ব্যক্তি অন্তত বেসিকটা ভালভাবে বুঝে শিখতে পারবে।

Dell laptop with ubuntu 7.04

May 25th, 2007 2 comments

Read it first:

Dear *nix lovers,

Please don’t be happy too much. I think dell is doing a great cheating . Because with linux the price didn’t decrease, more over it increase.

2-3 month ago i bought a dell laptop from usa with 1057$ (including sales tax)-windows vista basic
Today i configured mostly same thing (even lower) with ubuntu – the price is 1080$ without tax 😛

Moreover check there support cost for ubuntu, it more then vista expense.
