"Someone who knows a little about Apache configuration" certainly describes
me. "Very little" might be more accurate.
For the "local/.htaccess" file to work at all, does there not need to be
some kind of override in the httpd.conf file? A default install of Apache 2
appears to have .htaccess disabled. So having the file present may give me
a warm feeling, but it certainly isn't protecting anything. The default
appears as follows:
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
What should this be set to? I suspect that "all" would be OK as long as I
control the .htaccess files.
