following the El Cap upgrade my local DokuWiki installation responded with a 404.

http://localhost/~username

wasn't working either, but through some changes to the Apache conf I got at least this back. But

http://localhost/~username/dokuwiki/doku.php/start

responds with a 404: Not found. The requested URL was not found on the server. I don't know exactly what's wrong.

Would appreciate any help.

P.S.: Here's the username.conf

<Directory "/Users/username/Sites/">
    AddLanguage en .en
    LanguagePriority en fr de
    ForceLanguagePriority Fallback
    Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None

... and here's the tail of apache access and

... and here's the http.conf

#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/> for detailed information.
# In particular, see 
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.  
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/access_log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache2" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/local/apache2/logs/access_log", whereas "/logs/access_log" 
# will be interpreted as '/logs/access_log'.

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on the
# Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used.  If you wish to share the
# same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change at
# least PidFile.
#
ServerRoot "/usr"

#
# Mutex: Allows you to set the mutex mechanism and mutex file directory
# for individual mutexes, or change the global defaults
#
# Uncomment and change the directory if mutexes are file-based and the default
# mutex file directory is not on a local disk or is not appropriate for some
# other reason.
#
# Mutex default:/private/var/run

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

Edit 1 Something odd is that if I open

http://localhost/~username/dokuwiki

I get the index of the folder, i.e. the files and folders within the DokuWiki folder. This shouldn't be like that, right? And if I open

http://localhost/~username/dokuwiki/doku.php

I get the contents of the doku.php file.

Edit 2 The problems of the first edit were resolved by uncommenting

LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache2/libphp5.so

I also found that there were several backups of the http.conf file called httpd.conf.pre-update and httpd.conf~previous. I diffed them but found nothing different.
