Drupal 8 clean url failing after enabling mod rewrite

Trying to get drupal 8 site working on local lamp server on lubuntu but clean urls failing. Site is currently running on local wamp server without issue.

Lamp stack:

    Apache 2.4.18
    Mysql 5.7.15
    PHP 5.6

Have performed the following steps:

Enabled mod_rewrite:

sudo a2enmod rewrite

Added the following lines to /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

    <Directory /var/www/html>
	    AllowOverride All
	    Order Allow,Deny
	    Allow from all
    </Directory>

That didn’t work, so added rewrite rules to virtual host, ie apache2.conf, then changed “AllowOverride None” to “AllowOverride All” in three places in apache2.conf just for good measure.

    <Directory /var/www/html/mysite>
         RewriteEngine On
         RewriteBase /
         RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
         RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
         RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
    </Directory>

Not sure how to proceed.
