How could I give different access to sub-directories?
The first problem is: I must let the programmers modify the htaccess files, but not the access control.
I have access only to htaccess directives for once, not to the httpd.conf of Apache. And here are my folders:
~/www/ ~/beta/ -> group betatesters developers ~/dev/ -> group developers
I would like to have only one .htaccess located in the root directory (developers don't have access there).
~/.htaccess ~/htpassd ~/htgroup
AuthType Basic AuthName "Password Required" AuthUserFile /home123/user321/htpasswd AuthGroupFile /home123/user321/htgroup <FilesMatch "beta"> Require group betatesters developers </FilesMatch> <FilesMatch "dev"> Require group developers </FilesMatch>
