Im having trouble getting RewriteRules to work, im sure the code is correct.

Ive looked into the httpd.conf file and have :

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
AllowOverride All

Should the above <Directory /> have AllowOverride set to All aswell?

Each Apache directive within a module specifies the Overrides that it requires in order to function. In the case of mod_rewrite, you'll need to add "AllowOverride FileInfo" at minimum. Check the documentation [httpd.apache.org] for each mod_rewrite directive that you intend to use for more information.
