I was able to get htaccess files to work but the php execution mode had to be Apache mod_php…I could not use CGIwrapper or FCGId.
I am confused about one thing though…not all directives can be controlled by htaccess.
If using mod_php then ‘file_uploads’ will always be set to on. I can not override with htaccess and also even if file uploads is set to off in the php settings, running phpinfo() will always show that fileuploads is on. If I change to CGIwrapper or FCGId then I can not override with httaccess (seems to not work) but I can override in the php settings.
How do the different execution modes handle these things?
Actually .htaccess works fine under CGIwrapper here.
However the last upgrade of VM Pro seems to have changed the default to FCGId instead so suddenly i found new sites with .htaccess failing to work - Then changed back to CGIwrapper and all was working as intended again.
