Default more about .htaccess

Allow the use of .htaccess files on your server globaly, by changing AllowOverride None into AllowOverride All within your Apache configuration file.
Restart Apache afterwards.

Sorry Hans, unclear for newbies.

1. What is the Apache configuration file? Is this etc/apache2/apache2.conf or some other file?

2. In apache2.conf there are a lot of AllowOverride lines. Which one do we change from what into what or must we add something?

3. And when you state: Restart Apache afterwards, could you, for the sake of helping newbies, please give the command: /etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload?

Thanx in advance for your help
