I asked people if .htaccess is supported on my server and was told that it is. But when I type in anything in my .htaccess, the whole site became unaccessable. I spent way too much hours reading about the thread so i thought it will be easy if I just ask. I also heard that front page extention need to be turned off for .htaccess file to work is this true.
FrontPage needs its own htaccess file. For FP enabled sites, altering the existing htaccess file will break the frontpage side of things, but won't break your site. If the whole site becaomes inaccessible when using a valid htaccess file the chances are your server access.conf files are not allowing whatever you are trying to change.
thank you for the reply. My server is a rack I rented. I can mess with my rack (not that I want to break it). So the question is what should I change so that my server can use .htaccess file propery. It runs RedHat7.1 with Ensim 3.1.
