We all use .htaccess file for various purposes like URL redirecting, Rewriting the URLs etc. If you do a small mistake in writing rules for this file your entire site becomes unavailable to the visitors and shows 500 Internal server error.
For those of you who don’t know how to edit .htaccess file there is an online tool where you can create code for .htaccess rules for your blog or website.
Using htaccess editor you can write rules for
- Deny Access to Files
- Basic Authentication
- Error Page
- Default Page
- Setup WWW redirect
- Redirect Directives
- Access Restriction
The tool is extremely easy to use, for example you just need to enter your web address for setting up WWW redirect, once you do that it will give you the code.
Currently only above mentioned rules are available, another important rule missing is rule to prevent hotlinking of the images
