Mod_rewrite should be available if you plan to operate a fully search engine friendly web site with ILance. To use this module, first we have to enable it, since it's initially disabled in the configuration file on bare-bone servers. Open Apache's httpd.conf file and uncomment the following lines (remove starting #'s):

#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
#AddModule mod_rewrite.c

  • The first line tells Apache to load the mod_rewrite module
  • The second line enables the use of mod_rewrite

After you restart Apache, Mod_rewrite should be enabled ready for usage with ILance allowing urls on your web site to be search engine optimized. The .htaccess file is already pre-configured and ready to deploy.


Your minimum values for PHP settings within the php.ini configuration file should be similar to:
  • max_execution_time = 30 (or higher)
  • memory_limit = 256M (or higher)
  • post_max_file = 100M (or lower)
  • upload_max_filesize = 100M (or lower)

  1. 1. Server hardware recommendation does not reflect hardware or components you must use
  2. 2. ILance does not require you to use SEO functionality and will work without SEO enabled urls
