I have an htaccess in a dir, but a sub dir of that I want to leave open to anyone. Is there a way to do that? Preferably without going into the http.conf or server files.

Dont try it - <Directory> is not allowed in .htaccess

Instead create .htaccess in C:/xampp/htdocs/mydirectory as well in C:/xampp/htdocs/mydirectory/mysubdirectory and supply the order-clause separately:


Code: Select all
order deny,allow
deny from all

Attention: there *must not* be any space between "deny,allow".


Code: Select all
order allow,deny
allow from all

Thanks guys. I can appreciate the Directory application in the http.conf, I need to move to it eventually. I have a problem with the idea of the clear text UN/PW exhange with .htaccess . But I will get there eventually.

I tried the second application, but it did not work for the subdirectory. I should mention that the main directory already has an .htaccess that allows for certain users, and does not deny everyone. Is there a way to allow the mydirectory to have certain users, and then the mysubdirectory to be completely open?
