    Hi guys, I'm trying to enable .htaccess for localhost.

    I've made edits to several .conf files (restarting Apache each time), even creating one for my username in /private/etc/apache2/users, which reads:

    DocumentRoot "/Library/WebServer/Documents"

    <Directory "/Library/WebServer/Documents/">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    But nothing works.

    Any ideas where else I might need to make the edit?

    I don't want to work through the Sites folder, if possible.
