Ubuntu – Enabling clean URL in Drupal6

The easiest way to enable cleanURL Ubuntu is:

1.  enable rewrite module on apache.

a2enmod rewrite
(This can be disabled by doing: a2dismod rewrite)

2.  Set directory permission.

You must find the file that sets permission of each directory for apache. In ubuntu, it is in

Edit the page so that the directory that you will be using to serve webpages has “AllowOverride All”.

The file should read like this:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
allow from all

3.  Just restart apache and it should be working:
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

This should enable CleanURL in Ubuntu.
