AccessFileName directive


When returning a document to a client, the server looks for access control files in the document's directory as well as its parent directories. This directive sets the name of the file httpd should look for to find access control files.


AccessFileName file

Where file is a file name.

Only one AccessFileName directive is allowed in the server configuration file.


If you do not specify an AccessFileName, httpd assumes:

AccessFileName .htaccess


AccessFileName .ncsa-acl

This would set AccessFileName to .ncsa-acl.
