    Hi!

    OK, this is a limited intro, but you put the .htaccess file in the directory you wish to alter the parameters of - in this case you are configuring access privelliges.

    You use pretty much the same commands in the .htaccess file as you do in the main configuration file (e.g. httpd.conf).

    To deny access to a folder, I believe you could do this:-
    Deny All
    Put that in a .htaccess file, put it in the directory to prevent access to and voila. :)

    Though chances are you are after something more complex that this!

    Hope this helps somewhat!

    Hence, you should also change something in the Apache directory configuration for the DocumentRoot.

    By default the, AllowOverride-option for the
    DocumentRoot is set to "None".
    Please note that when specifying "None" for this,
    Apache will totally ignore the .htaccess file!:
    => AllowOverride None

    If you want to enable this feature, you should change it to:
    => AllowOverride AuthConfig

    Hopes this answers your question...

    Regards,

    Sander
