edited for clarification, because all answers/comments where talking about other things then the topic until now
I verified that my apache.conf (Ubuntu) says, that it looks for
.htaccess and that it allows
.htaccess to override everything:
#... AccessFileName .htaccess #... <Directory /var/www> AllowOverride All Options FollowSymlinks </Directory>
Then I put the following
.htaccess (with rights 755) into my
order allow, deny deny from all
Then I restarted my server as
root to make sure the config is loaded again and no fileaccess rights can harm my experiment:
sudo apache2ctl restart
The result is that he still opens the folder as if there would be no
What could be wrong? What else can I check to make sure that it works properly?
edit: I also checked if writing garbage creates an error message and it doesn't!
