MacOS .htaccess not setting php_values [SOLVED]

So… I’ve spent a good amount of minutes trying to figure out why my local Apache wasn’t setting php_values, because everything seemed fine… actually it was ignoring .htaccess completely, and the httpd.conf was with AllowOverride All. Just couldn’t get what was going on…

Then, I found out that my MacBook has a /etc/apache2/users directory, and inside it a tiny my_user.conf with AllowOverride None!!!

Changed from None to All, Also added FollowSymLinks in the Options line, and now everything is as it should be…

Beware the /etc/apache2/users dir!
