Applying Apache <Directory> rules to all subdirectories except 2.

Hi

What is the simplest way to apply these rules to all sub directories of "C:/Website" except for folders names "images" and "css"

<Directory "C:/Website/*/>">
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
        RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
</Directory>

Running Apache 2.4 on windows server.

Thankyou

The better question is why you would want to.  By forcing content pages to be SSL, and not enforcing the same policy for other resources, your users will likely receive mixed-content warnings in their browser.

Still, if you're sure this is the strategy you want, check out the DirectoryMatch container directive.  The Directory container allows some wildcards, but they will not match a directory separator character.  DirectoryMatch allows for the use of regex patterns, which gives better flexibility.
<DirectoryMatch "^C:/Website/.*(images|css)/">
    # ...
</DirectoryMatch>

If I did that, how do I ensure the instructions a processed in the correct order?

<DirectoryMatch "^C:/Website/.*/">
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
</DirectoryMatch>
<DirectoryMatch "^C:/Website/.*(images|css)/">
   RewriteEngine Off
</DirectoryMatch>

From the docs regarding how these containers are applied and merged:
Apart from <Directory>, each group is processed in the order that they appear in the configuration files. <Directory> (group 1 above) is processed in the order shortest directory component to longest. So for example, <Directory /var/web/dir> will be processed before <Directory /var/web/dir/subdir>. If multiple <Directory> sections apply to the same directory they are processed in the configuration file order. Configurations included via the Include directive will be treated as if they were inside the including file at the location of the Include directive.
