Did you ensure the RewriteEngine is on?
You'll want to verify that the mod is enabled - just look for rewrite.load symlink in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled. If not, run
sudo a2enmod rewrite to enable it. Restart apache using
sudo service apache2 restart and provided your .htaccess syntax is correct this will work.
Otherwise you will need to paste more information about your .htaccess file.
