    i'm using Litespeed Web Server - Enterprise Edition - Version 4.1.13 and i have some problems with .htaccess files. I created a /test/ subfolder and put a .htaccess file with garbage in it (like asjdasdnasdnasdnasklda) but the files in the directory are still accessible. I switch to apache and it gives me error 500 when i try to access /test/. Can you please help me?

    btw, all checked except None

    Allow Override Limit Auth FileInfo Indexes Options None

    restarted lsws and i sow the line below in the log:

    2012-11-10 02:15:48.263 INFO [HTAccess] Updating configuration from [/home/xxx/public_html/test/.htaccess]

    Upgrading to Litespeed Web Server Enterprise v4.2 didn't help either.

    this may be ignored by the web server.

    try put following in .htaccess

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule .* - [F,L]

    so /test/ is not accessible through browser.

    Hmm, this worked. However, what i'm trying to achive is to set default encoding to UTF-8.

    I created two files; "test.php" and "test.js" in /test/. The content is "This is a test file".

    Server header check gives:

    HTTP/1.0 200 OK =>
    Date => Sat, 10 Nov 2012 11:18:46 GMT
    Connection => close
    X-Powered-By => PHP/5.2.16
    Content-Type => text/html; charset=ISO-8859-9
    Content-Length => 28

    Adding the lines below to .htaccess do not make any differences:

    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

    <filesMatch "\.(htm|html|css|js)$">
    ForceType 'text/html; charset=UTF-8'

    <filesMatch "\.(htm|html|css|js)$">
    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

    AddCharset UTF-8 .html .php .js

    I am aware that the default encoding in php.ini is set to ISO-8859-9 but it must be possible to override this value.

    I fixed my problem. It was not .htaccess related. Thanks for your reply.
