Here’s what I found so far :

  1. .htaccess Tips and Tricks  part I creating this hidden file in the root folder (or any sub folder) of your website, it is possible to set/unset almost all the server directives that can be set in the apache main configuration file. And these changes will take effect only for the root folder in which you created the file and its sub folders. Thus .htaccess file plays an important role in providing fine-grained control to an individual managing a website without giving blanket control of the web server.
  2. .htaccess Tips and Tricks  part II, the arcane mysteries of URL rewriting.
  3. Hotlink test for image, find out if your .htaccess protect your images.
  4. Setting Up .htaccess, htaccess can be used in co-ordination with the Apache web server to password protect certain files and directories on your web server.
  5. .htaccess file generator, create .htaccess file online.
  6. How to Configure Your Website Using Htaccess in Linux with Apache, .htaccess files (or "distributed configuration files") provide a way to make configuration changes on a per-directory basis. A file, containing one or more configuration directives, is placed in a particular document directory, and the directives apply to that directory, and all subdirectories thereof.
  7. HOWTO php.ini overrides with .htaccess,
    in smaller environments where there are only a few developers and a single product there is seldom a need for different values of a php.ini setting. however, depending on how esoteric some of the developers in your group are, or how many projects you have going simultaneously, or how many devs you have working on the same box or you have production and development running on the same box or whatever; you may at some point find a need to have different values for certain php.ini settings for different environments hosted on a single server. the good news is, if youre running apache, php has integrated support for this need.
    .htaccess overrides are especially attractive in shared hosting environments where there is a high likelihood different clients will want different settings for php.ini directives.
