    I am going to assume that you are using Apache for your web server.

    By default, .htaccess files are not enabled in your web server root directory. What you need to do is change the AllowOverride directive to All in your apache httpd.conf file.

    So what you do is you open up the httpd.conf file and find the section that looks like this:

    <Directory "/var/www/html">
    #
    # Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
    # or any combination of:
    # Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
    #
    # Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
    # doesn't give it to you.
    #
    # The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
    # http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#options
    # for more information.
    #
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

    #
    # 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 None

    #
    # Controls who can get stuff from this server.
    #
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    </Directory>

    (The /var/www/html depends on your system, so that line might reflect a different path.)

    Change the AllowOverride None to AllowOverride All, restart your apache server, and reload the home page and you should see your installation.
