[SOLVED] Slim framework cannot make routing work

In Slim framework, cannot make routing work well as in the example provided on the site:

$app->get('/hello/:name', function ($name) {
    echo "Hello, $name";

Only / will work. All the other URLs like /hello/Bob will throw a 404.
Solution is to setup apache correctly.
1. In the same folder with your index.php create a .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]

2. In the httpd.conf of apache server put this at the end. Change as needed – mysite.com should be replaced with something like slim.localhost, also documentRoot and Directory should point to the correct path of apache:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin me@mysite.com
    DocumentRoot "/path/www.mysite.com/public_html"
    ServerName mysite.com
    ServerAlias www.mysite.com

    #ErrorLog "logs/mysite.com-error.log"
    #CustomLog "logs/mysite.com-access.log" combined

    <Directory "/path/www.mysite.com/public_html">
        AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

3. Restart apache
