Solved : 404 error while changing Permalink Settings in WordPress on Ubuntu + Apache2

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and LAMP (Apache2)

I did a fresh installation on WordPress and tried changing the Permalink settings from default to Post name option. But when I navigated to the posts, I used to get a 404 РPage not found error

Doing this solved the problem.

Making sure that the Mod_rewrite is enabled using this post and this post.

Then restart apache. Then update the permalink once more (so that it contains the Wordpres rules)

Then reload the sample-page. It works!
