The debian apache layout usually includes a default virtual host in a
directory called sites-enabled. If you 've got one of those, your
rewrite rules in the main server context will have no effect. There
are two ways around this, either move the rules in to the default
vhost, or add RewriteEngine On and RewriteOptions Inherit to that
