.htaccess propagation


#1

Is there anyway to make an .htaccess file apply only to it’s containing directory?

I want to stop indexing of certain file types in a directory but not for any of its subdirectories.


#2

.htaccess files affect the directory in which they are placed, and all directories beneath them in the directory tree.

You can affect the characteristics of indexing for a subdirectory beneath a directory with an .htacess file in it by placing another (different instructions) .htaccess file in that subdirectory.
