Overview

.htaccess file is a configuration file that can change settings for each directory.
Our server can be configured using .htaccess in the same way as Apache.

Please note that we do not provide support for detailed description methods of .htaccess, so we cannot provide guidance on editing content.

We would appreciate it if you could refer to the support policy, which describes the contents of the support.

Please read before setting

The .htaccess file is hidden because it is usually treated as a hidden file.
