On D7, before moving to drupal to an other location, I disabled "clean url"
But no, it is not possible to re-enable it :
even with javascript disabled, the checkbox doesn't appear, only the button "trun the clean url test".
and nothing happens when i click on it.
I tried to change the option in database, but it is a blog field, don't know how to change it..
I really don't know what to try now..
Thansk for your help

I had the same issue. In my case, it was an error in the .htaccess file. I am on a virtual host, so I simply had to uncomment "RewriteBase /" in the .htaccess file. Perhaps if you did move the site to another location (perhaps from a development subdirectory?), you may be pointing to the wrong directory as base.
Hope this helps.

Same issue. After submit test there is no result, no checkbox, only the same page is realoaded.

UPDATE: Solution is simple: to uncomment the .htaccess
line 104 (in D7.7) RewriteBase /

I unchecked that box too and now my site is not letting me go back to clean url's. I editted the .htaccess, rewritebase / line, but nothing.

PS: i flushed the caches many times.

Anyone wants to help?

thanks in advance

I've got the same problem when my site running in maintance mode after installation of D7 (only Test button, w/o checkbox to enable clean URLs). I turned off maint. mode, and "Clean URLs" checkbox appeared. Then turned it on, get back to maint. mode, and now it works fine.

My panic-meter was in the red zone, yes happily it gets fixed just as DerGeist described.

If your Drupal site has HTTP Basic Auth enabled in front of it, the test for clean URL's fails even if everything is correct with the server. I had to disable the basic auth, run the test, re-enable basic auth, and everything appears to be working now.
