All .htaccess files on my server are 100% completely ignored by Apache.

WHM 6.2.0
Cpanel 6.4.1-E28
FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE

These are the modules that I have installed:

Apache Core 1.3.27 1.3.27 OK
mod_log_bytes 1.2
mod_bwlimited 1.0
mod_gzip 1.3.26.1a
PHP 4.3.1 4.3.1 OK
FrontPage 5.0.2.2510
mod_ssl 2.8.12 2.8.12 OK
OpenSSL 0.9.6g

I do believe that I need mod_auth and mod_rewrite installed in order for apache to use .htaccess files, however cPanel did not use the ports installation of Apache so I can not install Apache modules via the FreeBSD ports so how do I install Apache modules in cPanel?

Thank you.
