htaccess : Java Glossary


.htaccess is a file used by Apache webservers to let you set up the MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) types and other configuration just by placing this file on your website, without needing to touch the master Apache configuration. Note the lead dot which means read-only in Unix. You must take special care when updating or deleting the file from your webserver. It might look like this:
Options +IncludesNOEXEC
AddHandler server-parsed shtml
AddHandler server-parsed html
AddType application/octet-stream class
AddType text/css css
AddType image/gif gif
AddType text/html html
AddType application/java-archive jar
AddType application/x-java-archive-diff jardif
AddType text/x-java-source java
AddType image/jpeg jpg
AddType application/x-java-jnlp-file jnlp
AddType image/png png
AddType application/x-java-serialized-object ser
AddType text/plain txt
AddType application/zip zip
I stopped using this feature myself because it interfered with SSI (Server Side Includes) in a way I could not resolve.
