I am trying to get .htaccess to work under Apache, but the server doesn't seem to honor it.
In httpd.conf I have:
I have restarted the server with
service httpd restart. I have also done a
service httpd reload.
The docs suggest testing the configuration with a garbage .htaccess file. If the server succesfully reads the garbage .htaccess file, this should result in an error when retrieving a page from the directory. But I get no error, suggesting that the server is not parsing the file.
What might be wrong?
