I resolved by doing the following: Check if there is a module called rewrite.load in your apache at:

cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/

If it does not exist execute the following excerpt:

sudo a2enmod rewrite

Otherwise, change the Apache configuration file to consolidate use of the “friendly URL”.

sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Find the following code inside the editor:

<Directory /var/www/> 
   Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
   AllowOverride None
   Require all granted
</Directory> 

Change to:

<Directory /var/www/> 
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Require all granted
</Directory>

After that restart the Apache server via:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
