    October 16, 2019

    How Nexcess clients on physical (non-cloud) servers can enable and disable .htaccess files.

    What you need

    • Experience working with .htaccess files; otherwise you may significantly degrade your site
    • A physical (non-cloud) Nexcess account; if you are a Nexcess Cloud client, instead contact our 24/7 support team for assistance.
    • A backup of your htaccess file


    1. Log in to your SiteWorx account.

    2. On the main menu, click Hosting Features > Htaccess.

    3. Select the check box corresponding to the file (1). From the With Selected drop-down list, select either Enable or Disable (2). Click Go when ready.

    For 24-hour assistance any day of the year, contact our support team by email or through your Client Portal.
