>Is there any other way to make the cloak script work than .htaccess??
two choices really;
-run it with a .cgi extension (not recommended) ...or
-get a new provider
Good idea about hosting anyway! :)
If you have some time, please, let me know what should the hosting provide allow, so I could use different cloak scripts?? I mean, what should I ask them when I will sign with them.. For example, there are a lot of such scripts and they seem all to work with .htaccess file..
Thanks a lot!
No you're not wrong, invoking a server side script is the way to do it.
>let me know what should the hosting provide allow.....?
They should allow SSI, cgi, perl, and allow overrides in .htaccess files. These are pretty standard offerings, they aren't considered special (read higher cost features).
Or am I wrong???
Yes that works!
>I mean, if so, then .htaccess is no needed!!
Ah, but then you would have to name your pages with .shtml extension at most hosts. With .htaccess overrides you can change this so that you continue to use .htm and/or .html while using SSI.
>Or am I wrong???
Not right or wrong, you just have more information now.
