URL Rewriting doesn't seem to work. Apache2

I would like it so that when the user goes to
that it redirects him to
. This is what I put in my .htaccess, but it doesn't seem to work.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/(.+)$ page.php?id=$1 [NC,L]

It just sends me to the /home directory, with a nice 404. Help is appreciated. Thanks.


I've tried some rewrite I know work, so now I'm certain it's not that my problem. I checked with
and yes, mod rewrite is running, I set up apache2 with LAMP, I'm running the latest version of Linux Mint.

Ok well I fixed the problem, this is how I did it.

sudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

and then I modified AllowOverride None to AllowOverride all in the /var/www/ part of the file

<Directory /var/www/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride all #This was 'None' before, change it to 'all'
    Order allow,deny
    allow from all
