.htaccess + OS X

24 July 2011

Words cannot contain the frustration I have configuring a Apache with .htaccess files on OS X. Having followed various online instructions I have many times open up the http.conf file (/etc/apache2/httpd.conf) and edited the line AllowOverride None to AllowOverride All. However it was helpfully not obvious that I needed to edit the section straight afterwards where there is another AllowOverride statement...

I hope this post saves you some bother. I can get back to work now!
