[kwlug-disc] Drupal issue my Google-Fu is not strong enough to answer apparently

I did not copy the two hidden files when I moved the installation. I
have now moved .htaccess and .gitignore. They are now in the same
directory as the root of the drupal install, which is /var/www (I have
no need for the WWW server on this system beyond this test site).
Doing so did not help the problem, even after an apache restart and
I think that apache is configured for use of .htaccess. I found
AccessFileName .htaccess in the apache2.conf file, and there is not an
AllowOverride to be found, which from my understanding of the
documentation I found means it defaults to ALL.
