.htaccess Config Files.HTAccess allows you to configure parameters for your webhosting account to use apache features to customise various aspects of file access, directory access, indexes and more. You can create you .htaccess file through MyRSAWeb. Be careful not to overwrite it! You can also create your own passworded directories with .htaccess, but we suggest you use the MyRSAWeb Control Panel to achieve this.
Possible .htaccess errors:Make sure you are creating your .htaccess file from the MyRSAWeb Control Panel, this will simplify and take the hassle away from having to make sure you don't overwrite the file.
NOTE: If your .htaccess file has a single error in it, your website may not even display!
In this event, remove the .htaccess file from your web hosting acount to restore things back to normal. You could also overwrite it with a blank .htaccess file.
