Thanks for the suggestion, but I am  not sure of the exact meaning of your

Here's what Ii understand:

I checked my /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and yes it says:

LoadModule rewrite_module     modules/mod_rewrite.so

in the file.

Then I copied the lines you suggest in that file (I placed them right after
the ScriptAlias lines)
I restarted the httpd daemon (killall -HUP httpd) and accessed my site. Same
page as before. Am I missing a step?
