.htaccess + OS X

⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

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!
