Hi Friends,

I did not find a forum to investigate, but I'll ask:) .htaccess about doing some things, but apache does not give any response. .htaccess is that a point will activate?

If you appreciate help ...

.htaccess is activated by default in XAMPP's Apache.

In case you do not use Xampps Apache (or created an Alias outside of DocumentRoot, or a different DocumentRoot for VirtualHosts etc.), you have to specify the "AllowOverride" directive to enable changes in .htaccess. This directive is part of the the <Directory ...> Block.


If you specify

Code: Select all
<Directory c:/srv/www/htdocs>
AllowOverride All

.htaccess in c:/srv/www/htdocs (or any subfolder) may override all directives of httpd.conf

See ... owoverride for detailed information.
