Vagrant/Puphpet Apache Allow Override

Last Modified: 2015-03-12

I've started looking at Vagrant and today I've created a vagrant box using a config I've put together using puphpet.

The box seems to work fine, however for some reason .htaccess files were not working. I checked the config and Allow Override was set to All for the vhost that I'd setup, but in httpd.conf it was set to none. Once I changed this to All, the .htaccess file started working.

My question is, in the yaml.conf file is there anyway to set the apache default to Allow Override On?

Here's the relevant section of my yaml.conf file;

    install: '1'
        user: www-data
        group: www-data
        default_vhost: true
        manage_user: false
        manage_group: false
        sendfile: 0
        - rewrite
            servername: admin-interface.dev
                - admin-interface.dev
            docroot: /var/www/html/admin-interface
            port: '80'
                    provider: directory
                    path: ''
                        - Indexes
                        - FollowSymlinks
                        - MultiViews
                        - All
                        - all
                        - granted
                    custom_fragment: ''
            engine: php
            custom_fragment: ''
            ssl_cert: ''
            ssl_key: ''
            ssl_chain: ''
            ssl_certs_dir: ''
    mod_pagespeed: 0

I think I somehow need to set the Allow Override All in the apache > settings section as well as in the vhost section.

Is this possible? or would i have to manually need to edit the httpd.conf file to set this?
