I seriously doubt if anyone here can help with this, but I just can't get clean URLs working on my Drupal install.
I'm running my own LAMP server (Ubuntu Linux, Apache2, MySQL, PHP) and I think I've done what I'm supposed to do to get mod_rewrite running on my Apache server (according to my post on the Ubuntu Forums here: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=144782), but every time I put the default .htaccess into my Drupal directory, my website goes down.
So I tried a modified version of the .htaccess file, with only the IFModule/RewriteEngine On portion of it uncommented, and the Drupal admin/settings/clean URL just returned a:
"It appears your host is not configured correctly for Clean URLs. Please check for ModRewrite support with your administrator."
Does anyone here have an idea of what I'm doing wrong, or settings that need to be changed for me to use clean URLs?
