    Question Windows Server & .htaccess

    Is it possible to have .htaccess on a Windows box for Directory Security. I have only used this in Unix, not Windows. If yes, where can I go to get information on what is needed to enable / use this.

    TY!

    htaccess is for Apache, and Apache can be installed on Windows, though I don't know anyone who would want to do that in a real-world public environment.

    There is no htaccess for IIS, it is strictly Apache.

    You can do a good portion of htaccess items through the MMC/Site Properties under IIS. For directory security, use your Explorer or File Manager to modify the permissions on the directories you want security to apply to.

    That is what I had thought. The friend that had asked, I told him the same answer, use the Windows Server default security / user settings from IIS.

    But I did not know you could install Apache on Windows.... That may be worth breaking a box and see what it would trash!

    TY for the quick response!
