    (hypertext access) file is a directory-level configuration file supported by several web servers, that allows for decentralized management of web server configuration. The original purpose of .htaccess - reflected in its name - was to allow per-directory access control, by for example requiring a password to access the content. Nowadays however, the .htaccess files can override many other configuration settings including content type and character set, CGI handlers, etc.

    .htaccess is a configuration file for use on web servers running the Apache Web Server software. When a .htaccess file is placed in a directory which is in turn 'loaded via the Apache Web Server', then the .htaccess file is detected and executed by the Apache Web Server software.

    The .htaccess file is a powerful website file that controls high-level configuration of your website. On servers that run Apache (a web server software), the .htaccess file allows you to make changes to your website’s configuration without having to edit server configuration files.
