Smile .htaccess enabled on server

I have a dedicated server which I have installed third party software. The software doesn't work. Neither my hosting company nor the software provider will help me sort this out. Apparently .htaccess is not enabled on my server. How do I do this?

I am a complete newbie and have struggled so far to get the software installed, so go easy on me please!

Thank you so much for responding!

I've found this article in my search for the answer, but I don't actually understand it at all.

I have been into my root directory via putty and did the command yum AllowOverride All. I also did this in the directory for my site. Something happened as I didn't get bashed and there was lots of text on the screen.

I've restarted the server but the links on the software still don't work.

When I called my hosting company, they said they didn't think that .htaccess was enabled.
