I have just finished final steps to install WHM/cPanel on my VPS server. I need to enable mod_rewrite on cPanel which I have already known on my local PC but not sure it will use same way with WHM/cpanel on a live server. I need to a guide to enable mod_rewrite on cPanel to use for websites?

mod_rewrite is included as standard on cPanel servers:

# httpd -M | grep rewrite
rewrite_module (shared)

You are exact, I got same result when running this command

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# httpd -M | grep rewrite
rewrite_module (shared)
Just curious, why it appears on SSH with "rewrite" word in red color and (shared). What does (shared) mean?

The red in "rewrite" is occurring because the grep command will highlight to indicate the match more clearly. For example if you ran "httpd -M | grep mod", you would see that everything with "mod" in is highlighted red.

(shared) means that the module has been compiled as a dynamic library, and is not part of the Apache binary.

Interesting answer! I thought shared means to be used for all camel accounts or something else. I also am having cpanel accounts too, I can disable/ enable mod security via ssh? If it's disabled it can affect my server works?
