Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I'm developing a multisite CMS and I'm facing a new challenge because now I want each websites to have their own htaccess file with their own rules etc... while keeping one general htaccess file with default rules(like non-www vs www etc..). This is mainly to avoid dealing with 1 huge htaccess file and avoid problems to all the websites running on this CMS if there is one piece of code messing for a website.
I've read that could be achieved with the virtualhost and the AccessFileName, but unfortunatly since I'm on a reseller hosting, I don't have access to the VH settings.
Can this be done differently ? I'd like to have 1 htaccess file per domain pointing to the web root of my CMS. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance !
This allows you to point as many domains and subdomains as you like at your server's IP address, and then use an .htaccess file in the top-level Web-accessible directory to 'sort out' all these domains and subdomains and point each of them to their own filespace. Within that separate filespace, you can have additional per-directory .htaccess files, and it will be possible for each 'site' to access shared code or objects in the top-level directory or other subdirectories of that top-level directory.
If you use a name-based virtual host, then you must explicitly declare/define each added domain and/or subdomain one-at-a-time in your "Control Panel," and sharing resources among them becomes problematic, as also recently discussed.
I just presented a simple example for subdomains in this thread [webmasterworld.com].
