.htaccess guidance

.htaccess is a special Apache file that tells your website how to function.
You can edit the existing .htaccess file on your site, or you can create a new text file in any directory and name it .htaccess
How can I secure my .htaccess file?
The file is already protected; it will be forbidden to browsers. To be very sure, double check that the file is named “.htaccess” and not “htaccess” nor “htaccess.txt”. (It must start with a dot.)
Can I delete my .htaccess file permanently?
You can delete the .htaccess file, but it will reappear immediately as a blank file.
Rasterbase has default directives which will always be in place, unless you create your own directives to overrule ours.
How to Edit Your .htaccess File
The .htaccess file contains directives (instructions) that tell the server how to behave in certain scenarios and directly affects how your website functions. Redirects and rewriting URLs are two very common directives found in an .htaccess file, and many scripts such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento add directives to the .htaccess so those scripts can function.

It is possible that you may need to edit the .htaccess file at some point, for various reasons. This article covers how to edit the file, but not what to change. (You may need to consult other articles and resources for that information.)

There are many ways to edit an .htaccess file.

  • Edit the file on your computer and upload it to the server via FTP.
  • Use an FTP program’s “Edit” mode that allows you to edit a file remotely.
  • Use the File Manager in cPanel to edit the file.

The fastest and easiest way to edit an .htaccess file for most people is to use the File Manager in cPanel. This article covers how to edit it using this method.
How to Edit .htaccess in cPanel’s File Manager
Before we do anything, it is suggested that you back up your website so that you can revert back to a previous version if something goes wrong.

To edit the .htaccess file, first we will open the File Manager:

  • Login to cPanel.
  • Click on “File Manager” in the “Files” section.
  • Select “Document Root for:” and select the domain name you wish to access.
  • Make sure “Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)” is checked.
  • Click the “Go” button.

The File Manager will open in a new tab or window.

  • Look for the .htaccess file in the list of files. You may need to scroll to find this file.
  • Right click on the file and click on “Code Edit” on the menu. (Alternatively, you can click on the icon for the .htaccess file and then click on the “Code Editor” icon at the top of the page.)
  • A dialogue box may appear asking you about encoding. Just click on the “Edit” button to continue.

The editor will open in a new window.

  • Edit the file as needed.
  • Click on the “Save Changes” button in the upper right hand corner when done.
  • The changes have been saved. Test your website to make sure it has the desired effect. If not, correct the error or revert back to the previous version until your site works again.
  • Once complete, you can click “Close” to close the window.

Setup Gmail IMAP in Outlook 2010

Gmail is one of the email services which supports IMAP feature which enables to send and receive emails from Outlook without any ads. Besides one use Outlook for all the business mails and now you can also add your personal gmail account along with it. The advantage of having setup this using IMAP is that when you read a mail or delete a mail, it is synchronized with both the web version of Gmail and the Outlook.

There are lots of features which are different in the new Outlook from Office 2010 than Outlook 2007 which makes it even more desirable to use Outlook for your Gmail.

Having said that, now lets see HOW to Setup Gmail IMAP in Outlook 2010?

Before you can start using Gmail IMAP in Outlook, we need to enable IMAP in Gmail settings.

In Gmail, go to Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> Make sure Enable IMAP is checked and click on Save Changes if you made any.

If you are starting the Microsoft outlook 2010 for the first time, you will be seeing the following startup screen, just click Next and choose Yes in the next screen where they ask would you like to configure an email account?

Using Telnet To Check SMTP Service

One of the most common e-mail issues we encounter in our support department is customers who are traveling and are encountering problems trying to send e-mail.

Please note that even if you are having problems sending email from a home or work/office network you can still use the following commands to test your connection to your usual SMTP server.

Windows Users

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 you may need to enable the Telnet client prior to following the rest of the instructions listed below. If you are unable to run Telnet at the command prompt you will need to follow these extra steps:

1. Click on Start.
2. Click on Control Panel.
3. Click on Programs and Features.
4. Click on Turn Windows Features On and Off.
5. Check the box next to Telnet Client and click OK.

You should now be able to run the telnet command from the command prompt and proceed with the instructions below.
Click on Start and then Run. In the run box that appears type in the word command and press enter. cmd will also work for many versions of windows. This will open a command prompt window.

Type in the following command:

telnet mail.domain.com 25
OR
telnet mail.domain.com 26

This will connect to the mail server on port 25 or 26 which is the port used to send e-mail.

If your connection is successful you should see a response from the SMTP server similar to the one below:

telnet mail.domain.com 25

Trying [IP Address of mail server]…

Connected to mail.domain.com.

Escape character is ‘^]’.

220-host.domain.com ESMTP Exim 4.69 #1 Mon, 29 Jun 2009 11:27:42 -0400

220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,

220 and/or bulk e-mail.

This is an example of an expected response, meaning that your computer is able to connect to the target SMTP server on port 25 or 26 successfully. What you see here is the SMTP server greeting, an announced message that the server displays whenever a connection is made to the SMTP port. When you use an email client like Thunderbird or Outlook the server greeting is not displayed.

If your computer were unable to connect you would receive an error message after your telnet command like Server Timeout, Could Not Reach Host, or a similar message. This indicates that there is a block in place on the network you are connected to.

If you are connecting from home or your office you will need to get in touch with either your internet service provider or a local network administrator to determine your available options. Most networks that block access to off-network SMTP servers allow you to use their e-mail server to send messages from any domain address.

Because these blocks can be added at any time your ISP€™s support department might not be aware of the block when you contact them. You may need to ask them to run the telnet test from their end or contact one of their internal network specialists for more information.

ASP.net Versions

ASP.net 3.0 and 3.5 are only added extensions to the .net 2.0 Framework. Unfortunately Plesk will not show 3.0 or 3.5 as they are only added extensions to 2.0 and there is nothing that can be done to change the version showing in Plesk.

How to Password Protect your Folders?

If you would like to use the cPanel tool to password protect your folders then you need to follow the steps;

The .htaccess File;

Adding password protection to a directory using .htaccess takes two stages. The first part is to add the appropriate lines to your .htaccess file in the directory you would like to protect. Everything below this directory will be password protected:

AuthName “Section Name”

AuthType Basic

AuthUserFile /home/username/.htpasswds

Require valid-user

There are a few parts of this which you will need to change for your site. You should replace “Section Name” with the name of the part of the site you are protecting e.g. “Members Area”.

The /home/username/.htpasswds should be changed to reflect the full server path to the .htpasswds file (more on this later). If you do not know what the full path to your webspace is, check your domain’s cPanel. Look on the left “stats” column of the cPanel.

The .htpasswds File

Password protecting a directory takes a little more work than any of the other .htaccess functions because you must also create a file to contain the usernames and passwords which are allowed to access the site. These should be placed in a file which (by default) should be called .htpasswd. This can be placed anywhere within you website (as the passwords are encrypted) but it is advisable to store it outside the web root (in your home directory) so that it is impossible to access it from the web.

Entering Usernames And Passwords

Once you have created your .htpasswd file (you can do this in a standard text editor) you must enter the usernames and passwords to access the site. They should be entered as follows:

username:password

Where the password is the encrypted format of the password.

For multiple users, just add extra lines to your .htpasswd file in the same format as the first.

Accessing The Site:

When you try to access a site which has been protected by .htaccess your browser will pop up a standard username/password dialog box.

Fix Suspended Page in WHM

This article goes over a problem some customers have when using the Suspended Page option of WHM. When suspending a domain in WHM, the domain that was suspended may redirect to the WHM login screen.  To fix this, the steps below should be followed.

Each time an account is suspended, WHM creates an .htaccess file in /home//www/ (where is the username of the account that is suspended) with the following information:

RedirectMatch .* http:///suspended.page/

Options -Includes -Indexes -ExecCGI

If is not actually hosted on the server WHM is installed on, then the hostname needs to be updated on the server. For example, if server.domain.com points to the IP of WHM but domain.com points off of the server WHM is on, this is a problem. As such, the hostname needs to be updated within cPanel to something such as server.domainhostedonserver.com and then add the A record in WHM or our DNS.

After doing so,log into the server via SSH and copy the files in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/suspended.page/ to /home//www/ (where the ‘username_of_hostname’ is the username of the domain which is now the hostname) by running the command below via SSH:
cp -R /usr/local/apache/htdocs/suspended.page/ /home/username_of_hostname/www/

Chown the files to the correct user. Be CAREFUL doing this.
cd /home//www/ (where is the user on the server noted above)
chown -R username.username . (where username is the actual username)

Then you should un-suspend the site that was incorrectly resolving to the WHM login page and then re-suspend it. What this does is creates a new .htaccess file with the correct information in it now (i.e. the correctly updated hostname for the server). Then you can go to the suspended domain in a browser and it will show the suspended page rather than the WHM/cPanel login screen.
