What is an .htaccess File
An .htaccess (hypertext access) file is a directory-level configuration file that allows for publisher management of some server configuration settings. The .htaccess file is placed inside the site directory tree and is able to override a subset of the server's global configuration for the directory in which the .htaccess is located, and all corresponding sub-directories.
Many Content Management Systems (CMSs), including Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to enable the dynamic content display and to refine the application performance. An .htaccess file also is used to provide access control to content in directories.
