Drupal 6 Enable Clean URLs .htaccess Settings Hostgator

Set-Up the Clean URLs for Drupal is a little bit Tricky  and if you try Googling around only for

a little while you will find Multiple Contrasting Options to be inserted on the .htaccess file.

There are Basically two kind of different Setup for the .htaccess file:

  1. For the Main Registered Domain located inside the public_html Directory

    RewriteEngine on
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
  2. For the Add-On Domains located inside at the public_html Sub-Directories

      # If your site can be accessed both with and without the 'www.' prefix, you
      # can use one of the following settings to redirect users to your preferred
      # URL, either WITH or WITHOUT the 'www.' prefix. Choose ONLY one option:
      #
      # To redirect all users to access the site WITH the 'www.' prefix,
      # (http://example.com/... will be redirected to http://www.example.com/...)
      # adapt and uncomment the following:
      # RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com$ [NC]
      # RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [L,R=301]
      #
      # To redirect all users to access the site WITHOUT the 'www.' prefix,
      # (http://www.example.com/... will be redirected to http://example.com/...)
      # uncomment and adapt the following:
      # RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.example\.com$ [NC]
      # RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://example.com/$1 [L,R=301]
    
      # Modify the RewriteBase if you are using Drupal in a subdirectory or in a
      # VirtualDocumentRoot and the rewrite rules are not working properly.
      # For example if your site is at http://example.com/drupal uncomment and
      # modify the following line:
      # RewriteBase /drupal
      #
      # If your site is running in a VirtualDocumentRoot at http://example.com/,
      # uncomment the following line:
      # RewriteBase /
    
      # Rewrite URLs of the form 'x' to the form 'index.php?q=x'.
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico
      RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
