View Full Version : How to make htaccess works for all clients?

9th April 2009, 15:53
Rather than make <Directory /home/www/clients/clientX/webX> for every clients, is there a way to make the htaccess allowed for every clients?

if I write <Directory /home/www/clients/*> then ... is it secure?

.htaccess is allowed for all clients. Only .htaccess restrictions that allows clients to override the limits of the site are not allowed. If you dont like the presets, change the master template for the vhosts.

just wondering about the issues I had in a similar thread: wordpress needs mod_rewrite activated, which was active, still I needed:

<Directory "/var/www/clients/client1/web2/">
Options All
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

to allow the usage of rewrites within .htacces?

Please take a look here:


By the way, changing to allow override all is really not recommended as this opens up your server to modifications by your users.
