Whelp after a few wasted hours reinstalling Apache and PHP twice, checking and rechecking configs, I finally got Mod_rewrite working. Turns out the apache2.conf file didn’t have the correct path for where my web files were actually staged. The virtual host entry was in pointed to the correct spot so everything was being hosted and appeared to be working, but as a result of the apache2.conf issue, the .htaccess file wasn’t being utilized and thus mod_rewrite was failing. All is right in the world now, so off to the next project.
I’ve been meaning to create a space to collect documentation on some of my projects. I thought some of them could possibly be interesting to others, so I created this page to start collecting and sharing them.
I should put a disclaimer out there right now: I am not an engineer, lawyer, expert, etc in any of the topics I’ll be posting about. Additionally, the views and opinions expressed on this page do not necessarily reflect those of my employers. All code and projects are posted as-is for entertainment purposes. I accept no responsibility for any damages that may be incurred from replicating anything found on here. Please consult your own doctor/lawyer/engineer/accountant/etc as I am none of the aforementioned positions.
With that, enjoy!
