  1. Before you begin this, please make sure you make a backup copy of the original file in case you make a mistake, this way you can always go back to the original configuration - always backup before you begin doing something like this.
  2. Find the httpd.conf file (usually usually it is located in Apache directory)
  3. Inside the httpd.conf file find and uncomment the line LoadModule rewrite_module modules/ (remove the pound '#' sign from in front of the line - the # sign is for comments, by removing the # sign, you are uncommenting the line) 
  4. Find <Directory /> directive and make sure that Options All and AllowOverride All options are enabled
    <Directory /> 
    Options All 
    AllowOverride All 
  5. These options can be overridden by other <Directory> directives that are applied for sub-directories. Make sure that Options All and AllowOverride All options are not disabled for directory where KnowledgeBase Manager Pro is uploaded.
  6. After you have made the changes and saved them, restart your httpd (apache) server for the changes to take affect. 
  7. Go to Styling and Front-end Settings to switch URL Rewriting ON and save the new settings.

  8. Open a KMP front-end page in your browser to check if URL Rewrite works correctly now.
