The requested URL was not found on this server. : Web and HTTPD

So I'm in the process of making a copy of my blog to my Linux installation and LAMP configuration I have there.  The purpose of this exercise is to upgrade my blog to the latest available WordPress available, 3.4.2 at the time of this writing.  (I'm way overdue).  I want to test the upgrade before committing to the site.  However, when I copy I got this:

Not Found

The requested URL /wordpress/2008/12/05/fedora-10-ui-video-graphics-problems-upon-reboot-to-fedora-10-graphics-are-unreadable/ was not found on this server.

Apache/2.2.15 (Fedora) Server at localhost Port 80

Here's what was missing and not configured causing the above.

Turns out, I was missing a .htaccess file from my wordpress home directory on my server:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /wordpress/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /wordpress/index.php [L]

# END WordPress

Having a file with the above contents, solved the issue for me.
