Quite often I see directives like
Order allow,deny Allow from all
As far as I understand it, this order would give access to everybody. I find that irritating since I think that this is the same as:
This one first checks deny lines, then allow lines and defaults to allow. So basically the first order can be rewritten in order to save one line. Are those two orders the same or will they behave differently?
The opposite should work too: In order to deny access to everybody, you can rewrite
Order deny,allow deny from all
Is that correct?
