[resolved] .htaccess question (5 posts)

    Excuse me for asking idiot questions. I want to perform some htaccess protections and need clarification.

    This will need to be done in my domain’s root HTAccess file.

    Here is my install structure.

    /
    htdocs
    wpblog

    Is the htdocs where root htaccess resides or is that in wpblog?

    There are a lot of htaccess files I need to clarify root.

    I am not an expert, however I had to play with htaccess files a lot. I still don't understand how to write one.

    Anyway to answer your question, this is my humble view, I could be wrong, you will need htaccess file for all the levels. That is / and then htdocs and wpblog. Each can have its' own specific rules. However it can be tricky at times to understand which set of rules are overriding each other.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, it is tricky I have some other resources I can check also to clarify. I don't like making mistakes.
