htaccess - rslemer - 10-09-2016

There many htaccess in different directory in coreBOS

Actived apache use this, impact all system performance

What do you think about this? For security reasons ?

RE: htaccess - joebordes - 10-09-2016

Please explain what you mean with "impact system performance"?

If I remember correctly, all the .htaccess that are there are for security reasons, the only effect they have is to block access. That should have no impact on system performance.

RE: htaccess - rslemer - 10-09-2016

You should avoid using .htaccess files completely if you have access to httpd main server config file. Using .htaccess files slows down your Apache http server. Any directive that you can include in a .htaccess file is better set in a Directory block, as it will have the same effect with better performance.

Then there is nothing to worry about. The .htaccess files we have in place will only be processed when someone tries to do something they shouldn't be doing (accessing directly a directory they shouldn't be accessing). If you use the application normally you will never run into these files.

Thanks for the information!
