I'm running Ubuntu Lamp and I can't get WP permalinks working. I migrated my site using WordPress Duplicator which has worked for me many times before.
YES, .htaccess is writing properly. (there is also another .htaccess in /wordpress/.htaccess -- but all indications show that WP writes to the one in the site root)
I have added `Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all` to the following files:
I have added `ServerName localhost` to:
I have run:
Then restarted Apache.
I have created new mySQL databases and users and build new packages with Duplicator and tried those. I have tried disabling permalinks and then re-enabling after install.

I feel like I have tried just about every forum suggestion out there.
I'm just starting out so I'm fine scrapping the whole thing and starting over but I'm not convinced it would do anything. I feel like I'm still missing something.
Looking forward to your suggestions in the meantime I will keep digging.
