Ubuntu 13.10 and Apache 2.4 Installation Changes

This post is FYI since I have found a workaround for now. The new version of Ubuntu (13.10) uses Apache 2.4 which has some changes in the way it works. The old wikis for Ubuntu installation found here will no longer work: https://omeka.org/codex/Install_on_Ubuntu

Step six says to open 000-default.conf and look for "<Directory /var/www/>" in order to change "AllowOverride None" to "AllowOverride All."

The directory is no longer in Apache 2.4 under Ubuntu. I don't have a workaround for this but I thought it was worthy of noting. Here's what 000-default.conf looks like now:

<VirtualHost *:80>
# The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
# the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
# redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
# specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
# match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
# value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
# However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
#ServerName www.example.com

ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www

# Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
# error, crit, alert, emerg.
# It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
# modules, e.g.
#LogLevel info ssl:warn

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

# For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
# enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
# include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
# following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
# after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
#Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf

# vim: syntax=apache ts=4 sw=4 sts=4 sr noet
