I am setting up Drupal locally in my Ubuntu. I used drush to download and install Drupal 7. (using mysqladmin to create the database and the user)

All worked well, I have the default homepage, but when I try to do any action (logging in, registering) I get a 404. I imagine the mod_rewrite doesn't work..

I installed the Apache module and enabled it, restarted the server, but no lack...

I am guessing mod_rewrite needs more parameterization...?

update: I can access correctly the page with this url:

http://localhost/index.php?q=user

so I guess my mod_rewrite clearly doesn't work as it should..

    Do you have AllowOverride None in your httpd.conf or vhost file for that site's web root? If so try changing that to AllowOverride All and restarting Apache – Clive Oct 16 '12 at 20:04
  • hm, my /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file is empty.. it's there, but it's empty. – George Katsanos Oct 16 '12 at 20:09
  • What about in sites-enabled/default (or something similar) that'll be the default vhost file on Ubuntu I think – Clive Oct 16 '12 at 20:11
  • it was already set to AllowOverride All ... :( – George Katsanos Oct 16 '12 at 20:17

Have you verified that the .htaccess file from the Drupal 7 core package is in the website root?

You can easily download and extract that file from drupal.org base package: http://drupal.org/project/drupal

  • the .htaccess file is in the website root. (I think as I used drush to deploy, everything was done as it should from the Drupal perspective..) it's mostly something with Apache – George Katsanos Oct 16 '12 at 20:22

    I had copied the site over and somehow the hidden files (.htaccess) did not get copied over. I looked all over for an answer - Thanks!! – Wavesailor Jan 18 '17 at 7:27

I just realized I had not restarted apache2 service after enabling mod_rewrite... It works fine.
