XAMPP WordPress – RewriteEngine not allowed here.
If you’re running into this issue and you’ve uncommented out the module rewrite like i have and you’ve set your AllowOverride’s to All and still getting the error. Try this and see if it helps.
In your “C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-xampp.conf” file look for “<Directory “C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp”>” and set that AllowOverride to All, and restart Apache. Hope this helps.
