mod_rewrite module on Windows Hosting (Plesk)

I have a Wordpress site on GoDaddy with Windows Hosting (Plesk) and i want to use the WP SUPER CACHE plugin with mod_rewrite option. I just don't know if my Windows Hosting (Plesk) support mod_rewrite module or i have to enable it manually?

Hi @WorldHealthSite. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community!


Mod_rewrite is part of Apache. Our shared Windows hosting accounts (including Plesk) do not use Apache, so mod_rewrite can not be enabled. However, you should be able to use Microsoft URL Rewrite Module to create any necessary redirects. If the plugin you want to use requires the use of mod_rewrite specifically, then you may consider moving to a different platform (cPanel or Managed WordPress) if you need to use it. Alternatively, you can wait to see if another community member can comment on getting this plugin to work on a Plesk account using the rewrite module.
