This is a module for the Apache webserver (v1.x and v2.x) and rewrites requested URLs on the fly. It operates both in per-server context (Apache v1.x: httpd.conf, Apache v2.x: apache2.conf) and per-directory context (.htaccess). Detailed informations can be found on the Apache Module Homepage.
So what does it to WackoWiki?!
1. mod_rewrite enabled: http://www.wackowiki.com/WackoDownload
2. mod_rewrite disabled: http://www.wackowiki.com/wakka.php?wakka=WackoDownload
That's it ;-)
Howto enable mod_rewrite
Of course, you need an Apache webserver WackoWiki is running on, and the module mod_rewrite has to be installed and activated.

This file is shipped with the WackoWiki package you downloaded, you find this file inside the Wacko folder. If you can't find it, just create it (Permission: -rwxr-xr-x).
Make sure that your .htaccess files are not ignored: in your apache configuration file (http.conf or apache2.conf), make sure that for the directory where the wiki is:
is not set. Because then .htaccess files are ignored.

httpd.conf / apache2.conf
If you want to edit the httpd.conf / apache2.conf file directly, please make sure to delete or rename the .htaccess in your Wacko folder.
Now add the following lines to your configuration file:
Restart your webserver to enable the modifications!
