Based on what you’ve shared, my guess would be that your .htaccess file might have permissions set that are preventing apache from reading them. If you created it as the root user this may be the case and running a recursive command to set permissions/ownership in that directory may miss the file since it is hidden.

I would recommend doing:

chown www-data.www-data .htaccess

In the directory where your .htaccess file is located, then restart Apache and see if the problem persists.

having the same problem, did the chown trick, but no change so far…(
