Debugging steps:

1. Start with a *really* simply .htaccess:
Order allow,deny
deny from all

2. What is the exact full pathname to your .htaccess file?

3. Are there any symbolic links or other funny business in the path?

4. Do: "grep AllowOverride httpd.conf" and make sure you know what each 
directive is doing.

5. Are you sure you are editting the correct copy of httpd.conf and 
restarting the server after making changes?
