Hypertext Access, aka .htacess, is a configuration file commonly seen and used on several web servers like servers based with Apache. It controls server directories and all technicalities within it like security, listings, redirection, error pages, utilization of files, and extensions.

Hope this helps! :hug:

Simply put it allows you to have your own configuration such as forced SSL and redirects etc in every directory of your site.

It's like having full access for a sites configuration so you as a user can set things as you require.

Configuration file which resides in a directory, indicating which users are allowed to access the files contained in that specific directory.

.htaccess (Hypertext Access) is configuration file used by Apache-based web servers, which is uploaded to your web server. It can be edited through text editor on some web hosts for following tasks:

To redirect users to a custom error page
ban users or allow users using IP addresses
redirect visitors to another page automatically

.htaccess is used on the Apache Web Server software which works as configuration file. Once it's placed in proper directory, it runs on the server. It is executed by Apache Web Server software.

It can disable and enable the various functionalities on the server. You can define various rules in it which will applied to the server using it.

.htaccess is like, in lay mans terms, a captain for your websites folders, and its subfolders.

It gives general commands to how your websites functions, based on what is located in there.

There are numerous functions you can order it to do, a simple google search can give u a list of commands/scripts

Htaccess is a configuration file that is used on apache web servers. This is used to make the changes in the configuration for a specific folder. This will ignore the global configuration for that folder and take the configuration from htaccess.
This will be a hidden file and file name will be .htaccess
