.htaccess not loading

I have a very basic .htaccess file that doesn’t seem to be loading. I made sure it is read accessible by user,group,and public. I use this script everywhere without any issues. But every page outside of the home page go to 404. It is 6 lines long. Any help would be appreciated:

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/www/
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

Basically index.php handles every request. Thanks in advance!

Leave out “Options +FollowSymlinks”. A very similar option (SymlinksIfOwnerMatch) is turned on by default, and putting it in your .htaccess may cause odd errors.

Other than that, your .htaccess looks fine.
