Apache Directives (Optional): for me and joomla not so optional.
 
Hello,

To make most of the joomla installations working with user friendly urls and other plugins I need to set these apache directives.

<Directory /var/www/webxx/web/>
Options +Includes +FollowSymlinks -Indexes
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
<Files ~ "^\.ht">
Deny from all
</Files>
</Directory>

I found this on the web and when I used it the joomla site works.

- Is there a way to change this for all websites as default?
- Is this setting harmfull or not hacker save?
- Are there other/better solutions.

Thank you in advance..

Yes, change it in apache2.conf or httpd.conf file. But be aware that this is very insecure when you set "AllowOverride All".

No need to change much on apache2.conf or httpd.conf
