Add RewriteEngine On at the top of your .htaccess file and run this command as root:

a2enmod rewrite

Make sure you have AllowOverride All in your Virtualhost config.

Finally, restart apache:
sudo service apache2 restart
I have a Wordpress installation.
How can I configure the AllowOverride parameter?
sudo nano $(ls -1d /tmp/aioefjaisjf/* | grep -v default)
and set AllowOverride to All.
