    .htaccess made easy


    One of my colleagues has written a little utility to make it easy to implement the most common htaccess tweaks, such as prevention of bandwidth theft by hotlinking, adding support for WAP content, and enabling server-side includes.

    Although originally written for in-house use, we thought others might find it useful, so we've made it available as a free download. If you're interested you can download it here:

    I find it very useful, and even discovered some cool new things that you can do with .htaccess!

    You should have said Apache directive instead. .htaccess is only needed when you don't have access to httpd.conf. So don't mislead readers by thinking that .htaccess is the only way to configure Apache directives. You should tell people to learn Apache directives inside httpd.conf instead.

    Obviously that's the preferred approach, but it's not an option if you don't have direct access to your server. Many people just use hosting companies - try asking them to let you loose on httpd.conf on their shared servers!

    For me, htaccess is the only option, and anything that saves me having to wade through the Apache documentation is good thing

    But you did not mention that.
    Many people just use hosting companies
    These days many people as well running their own servers.

    I know you might not like me making correction on your post but I have to because your post is way to misleading. I've seen tons of people running their own servers but they are still using .htaccess because there are so many people like you misleading others.

    Welcome to DevShed Forums, manish.futurepr.

    This thread is nine years old. The link was http://www.tlhouse.co.uk/HTAccessible.shtml, but that page seems to be gone now.

    I recommend that you read the MOD REWRITE Guide & Common Requests thread.
