About htaccess files
The .htaccess file is a configuration file used by the Apache web server that is used to control various aspects of how the server handles requests for web pages and other resources. It is a plain text file that is placed in a directory on the server, and the instructions in the file apply to that directory and all of its subdirectories.
The .htaccess file can be used to specify a wide range of server-side configurations, including:
Redirect rules: The .htaccess file can be used to redirect users from one URL to another, either temporarily or permanently. This can be useful for changing the structure of a website or for redirecting users from an old URL to a new one.
Authentication requirements: The .htaccess file can be used to require users to log in in order to access certain pages or resources on a website.
Caching policies: The .htaccess file can be used to specify how the server should cache resources, such as images or HTML files, in order to improve the performance of a website.
URL rewriting: The .htaccess file can be used to rewrite URLs in order to make them more user-friendly or to improve the SEO (search engine optimization) of a website.
File type handling: The .htaccess file can be used to specify how the server should handle different types of files, such as HTML, PDF, or audio files.
The .htaccess file is a powerful tool for configuring the behavior of a website, but it is important to be careful when editing it, as making certain changes can cause errors or other problems with a website. It is recommended to make a backup of the .htaccess file before making any changes.
This module allows you to add custom directives to your htaccess file. You can add 301 redirects for SEO or even some speed related directives too.
