<Tip type="Apache on Win32" author="Jakob Doelling>
In the main conf file of Apache, i. e. httpd.conf you can alter the name
of access file iun the main server config section to name.htacess. In
order to modify more easyly, link the extention ".htaccess" to notepad.
The other way is if presentation server is on Unix, upload your access
file(s) and rename it on the remote site to .htaccess.

To Unix or not to Unix. That is the question whether 'tis nobler in the
mind to suffer slings and arrows of vast documentation or to take arms
against a sea of buggy OS and by raping the support lines end then?
