i have a .htaccess ban bad bot problem question ... i use the bellow code to ban spam robots ect
SetEnvIf Remote_Addr ^11\.xxx\.33\.44$ ban SetEnvIf Remote_Addr ^55\.xxx\.77\.88$ ban <Files ~ "^.*$"> order allow,deny allow from all deny from 127.x.0.199 deny from 192.xxx.0.19 deny from env=ban </Files>
the above code i place in the htaccess file in my public_html folder... but the banned ipís are only banned in the public_html folder not in any sub folder or in the cgi-bin also located inside the public_html folder ..
How come? is the dedicated server not configired corectly .. that the apache config.file is not allwoing to overwrite ban rules in sub folders? or is this line wrong: <Files ~ "^.*$">
please advise i need help
i have two dif servers and on one it works fine and ont he other it bans only in one folder

Well, you could just use <Files *>, but that's not the problem. You might want to check your config file, and make sure you have AllowOverride Limit or AllowOverride All set for the directory path you're trying to protect. See AllowOverride in the Apache core documentation.
