I notice that my .htaccess file contains
<Files 403.shtml> order allow,deny allow from all </Files>
Which allows the 403 error page, 403.shtml, to be viewed by addresses that are specified on a "deny from" line.
Rather than showing an error page, I would just like to show the home page of the (SEF-enabled joomla) site (not any other pages). My feeble attempt was:
<directory /> order allow,deny allow from all <directory>
But that just made the server unhappy.
What is the correct way to do this?
