/var/www. I have many subdirectories within it, and I’d like to have one of these subdirectories using clean URLs, specifically becaused I was testing some RESTful API stuff. However, I’ve struggled a bit to make Apache recognize my .htaccess file.
So, after some minor stress, here it is the quick step-by-step guide of what I did, without further explanations:
sudo vim /etc/apache2/sites-available/defaultWithin the
Directory /var/wwwdirective, change
AllowOverride All. Then run these two commands:
sudo a2enmod rewrite sudo service apache2 restartAnd all of sudden it started working.
