It sounds like that the Apache Mod Rewrite is not enabled.

In order to enable it, you could use the following command:

sudo a2enmod rewrite

You might also have to restart Apache after that:

sudo systemctl restart apache2

For more information on how to use the module you could take a look at this tutorial here:

Let me know how it goes.

This tutorial goes over Mod_Rewrite, an apache module that allows you to manipulate URLS to provide shorter or more relevant ones. This tutorial will go over Activating Mod_Rewrite, Creating and Using the required .htaccess page, and setting up the URL rewrites.
