Hi Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Samri,
How u doin? Well i want to clarify that is it wise and feasible to write .htaccess file for my application which will be live24/7 to thousands of users. Actually if you remember i have been constantly taking your and Samri's able guidance for hosting my application live. Still to refresh your memory i posted my query at (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Servers/Apache/Q_21100303.html
). I have almost implemented all the things which you guys suggested. My envt is RHL 9.0/ Apache2.0 with mod_mono/ Mono 1.0. The users will be accessing some other directories too in the main application directory. e.g if i have placed the application directory "apps" as under /var/www/html/apps, now in this apps directory i have some other directories which the users will be needing to retrieve some data for thier use. Should i check for the authentication at that level tool? All I want is that only valid users may have access to that data. Although at the first entry point the .NET applcation asks for the authentication of the valid user but i was still wondering from my, i mean Apache's point of view. I dont know whether this is a valid question or not and i think you are in a better position to guide me. So from that point of view what do you suggest? I would really appreciate if you could guide me step by step...
Thanks in advance
