I enabled mod_rewrite and want to redirect one of my local virtual host websites to google.com for practice.
I created an .htcaccess file in my virtual directory (/var/www/http://ift.tt/1GA3sbW) and gave permissions to .htcaccess by adding the following code to my virtual host's (example.com) config in /sites-available/.
<Directory /var/www/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory>
I am now attempting to use mod_rewrite by adding code to the .htcaccess file but have had no success thus far. Is there any way to check if .htcaccess is working? If it is, how do I redirect using mod_rewrite?
