Try setting AllowOverride All at server-config level (i.e. outside of
all <Directory> and <VirtualHost> blocks. However, this is actually the
default so it should work already - unless you switch it off somewhere
else... (I think if you have even one AllowOverride directive anywhere,
it switches off default behaviour everywhere).
