.htaccess and Allow override all
Apache still ignoring .htaccess

A newby question...

I've just changed the configuration file as follows:

AllowOverride None

AllowOverride All

and the server still doesn't seem to recognize the .htaccess file. I've uploaded a nonsense .htaccess file to the server to hopefully produce a server error but nothing...

Is there somewhere else I need to change permissions?

Thanks in advance.

I battled this myself today for awhile before I found new problem :-).
Make sure you get the right AllowOverride set to all. There where a few of them in my file. I also (not sure if I need to) uncommented out the LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so in httpd.conf

Just in case... make sure httpd.conf knows which file to look for :

AccessFileName .htaccess

Make sure you have all entries for AllowOverride set too all. There's
one for directories also, if memory serves.

mikemcs :
If modules are commented out, make sure they are installed on your machine before you uncomment them. If they are not installed, uncommenting them won't help.
