I believe that Cherokee does not support .htaccess files (which could be though of as a good thing in terms of speed).

But, how do I do the things I used to do with .htaccess with Cherokee? Also, some of my clients host their sites on my webserver. How can they utilise .htaccess stuff now that I plan on using Cherokee?


From the Cherokee FAQ (bottom - http://www.cherokee-project.com/doc/other_faq.html):

I’m used to Apache’s .htaccess. Will Cherokee ever support it? Short answer: No.

But you can try things in Cherokee with "Handlers": http://www.cherokee-project.com/doc/modules_handlers.html

  • I get this bit. But the problem is more about how to allow other users of my server to do things they would normally do with .htaccess – psp May 1 '11 at 13:44
  • Please describe "do things". And take note of the fact that for a lot of these "things" your clients will need admin-rights in the Cherokee web-interface. – Henk May 2 '11 at 9:51
