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..
