Enable rewrite module in XAMPP, WAMP and Apache

Sometimes we face problem in XAMPP and WAMP that rewrite module (mod_rewrite) does not work properly

It is because the rewrite module is not enabled by default in Apache’s configuration settings.
But you can enable it manually by doing few simple steps:

The configuration file generally locates at:{apache_dir}/conf/httpd.conf
  
If you are using XAMPP or WAMP package then you will find the file at:
    {xampp_dir}/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    {wamp_dir}/apache/conf/httpd.conf

Search for the following string:
    #LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.

so and uncomment it (remove the ‘#’ sign).

Now search for another string AllowOverride None and replace it by AllowOverride All
Finally save the changes, close your text editor and restart your apache server.
