My situation: I have xampp and perfectly working website. And problem is that site does nothing, while changing htaccess.
Here is solutions for this:
- go to xampp folder and search for httpd.conf in apache/conf folders.
- open it
- make sure that LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so is uncommented
- find all AllowOverride and changed None to All. All AllowOverride!!! There should be 3 of them..
It worked for me.. and might help you.
Happy htaccess editing!
