I checked out my httpd.conf and my apache2.conf. Httpd.conf was there but it was empty. Apache2 has some settings but I didn't see any that were related to what I am trying to do. Are there any other conf files I should check?
In the apache2.conf file I found this,
# AccessFileName: The name of the file to look for in each directory
# for additional configuration directives. See also the AllowOverride
It was uncommented already so I left it alone. It says that I should see something called "Allowoverride Directive" but I don't know what that is.
Also, yes this is my home server.
