The short answer is no to the first question and yes to the second.
The long answer is ...
I actually don't use .htaccess, I put the directives into the Apache
configuration file. If you do not have full control of the server,
this is an unlikely option. *But* the .htaccess options are identical
- just in a different place.
I have a website farm - a collection of many websites all running on
the same server on different virtual hosts.
The Apache conf file is equivalent to farmconfig.
An .htaccess file would be equivalent to a local config.
It's no secret that my home wiki with no pages is here:
and my farmconfig.php says this:
$FarmPubDirUrl = 'http://all.eton.ca/pmwiki/pub'
but you can't get to:
because the Apache config file says this:
### --- prevent execution of PmWiki in ALL from anywhere -----
Deny from all
I think (and other more experienced could confirm or deny) that you
could use the <Files ...> stuff in .htaccess in the same directory as
