having trouble with wordpress pretty permalinks.. ahh!

  1. I feel like I have read every blog or post on this topic but there are so many out there... I still seem to be missing SOMETHING.I don't know what. My site is hosted on Amazon EC2.

    My mod rewrite module is definitely working. I used to have the following in my .htaccess to no avail:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    Then, I did "chmod -v 666 .htaccess" to make sure WordPress could accesss it.

    My /etc/apache2/sites-available/default looks like this

    DocumentRoot /var/www
    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    # AllowOverride FileInfo
    </Directory>
    <Directory /var/www/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    # AllowOverride FileInfo
    Order allow,deny
    allow from all
    </Directory>

    And my /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default looks like this, due to the advice of another thread

    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    # AllowOverride FileInfo
    </Directory>
    <Directory /var/www/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    # AllowOverride FileInfo
    Order allow,deny
    allow from all
    </Directory>

    When I restarted Apache, all the text listed above in my .htaccess disappeared and pretty permalinks still do not work. Any one know what I should do next????
