    I had to configure that manually in Apache :)

    I've started running all my sites on SVN - makes backup and restore so much easier. Not to mention the fact that I can redeploy on any server quickly & effortlessly now.

    Another tiny feature I've found that just makes using LiteSpeed nice :D

    Are you sure you can access .svn? LiteSpeed should block .ht* and .svn* automatically.

    Nono you mis-understand.

    I can't browse .svn dirs from the browser.

    I keep my html root in sync via svn - nothing to do with LiteSpeed - other then it auto stops ppl looking at the .svn dirs that come with keeping files in a svn repository.

    ie LiteSpeed can't block me ssh'n into my server and running svn commands on the html root dirs...

    I was saying that I like the LiteSpeed auto blocks access of people browsing .svn directories that are present in my web sites

    There that should clear it up :)

    That should be what litespeed did already.

    Your so not getting it :p

    LiteSpeed does block out of the box - Apache doesn't (out of the box, although you can make it)
    I like how how LiteSpeed does do it automatically.


    The other point I make in my original post is.

    I keep my files that are served by LiteSpeed in a SVN Repository. As such you get a bunch of .svn dirs that you don't want people to be able to browse (which then leads back upto my first point). It's good that LiteSpeed blocks access out-of-the-box to these .svn dirs :)


    And the whole point of my post was as the title states. I like this feature - its good, its great, thanks you.
    Then I went on to say how it is great and of benefit to me.
