    Hello,


    I need some help setting up the .htaccess file on my server. Is it just a simple text file, and do I simply upload it to my main directory?

    Thanks in advance.

    Wow, I've only just set up an .htaccess file on my web server too. Took a while to get things out, it would have been quicker if anyone had posted a reply to my post in the forums.

    I used mine for user authentication, and found everything I needed to know from http://www.apacheweek.com.

    What are you using your .htaccess file for? I'm interested in some of it's other capabilities.

    I used to use it to parse .php files the same as .php, and have my directory structure point to .php and .php3 files if the index.html file was absent...however my host does that automatically now so I don't need to anymore.

    If you have mod_rewrite and mod_perl, you can do things like redirect people depending on request type (e.g. Wap or HTML) or for different user agents etc.
