XF 1.4 Friendly URL issue

Hello Everyone,
I'm trying to get my Friendly URLs to work. I have had no luck so far. I have the ".htaccess" file as well as the htaccess.txt file on the server (by default).

I enabled the option for friendly URLs, after that I get an error when trying to access any forums on the site.

I do not know about the mod_rewrite installation. How can I enable the mod_rewrite function on my linux box (sever)?

Is there any info I need about rules as well?

Many thanks in advance.
Thank you Brogan, I did find that link when doing some research as well. I will give that I try.

Those rules listed in the solution is accurate as well?

You need to use the XenForo .htaccess file.
Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess, if one doesn't already exist.

If the .htaccess file contents are correct then you need to look at the server configuration posted previously.
