.htaccess intro

.htaccess files are used to modify server configuration on per-directory basis. It is used when a user doesn’t has access to modify server configuration settings. The directives in .htaccess file is applied for the current directory and subdirectories. .htaccess uses those directives that has their AllowOverride property set to not none.

If we can, we should avoid using .htaccess file mainly for the following 2 reasons –
1. When we set AllowOverride property to allow modification in .htaccess files, then the server checks every directory for .htaccess file. This hit the performance.
2. Second one is security. We are allowing users to change server configuration. So, it may become a security hole.
