My home system on a DSL line is getting worn out by bad behavior robots.
Awhile back, I created a .htaccess file that block countries by IP blocks. Its 2MB in size.
I have been running Linux since Slackware 1.0 and moved to Redhat around
2.0. I started after running a BBS using a doorway for newsgroups. Been hooked ever since.
So, today, I tried following the directions for apache.org website, https://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/howto/htaccess.html to move the
file to a file located in a directory /var/www/htdocs.
I’m just not following or understanding. The .htaccess file works but on a slow DSL, I don’t want the hits.
I added the following to my httpd.conf:
AddType text/htdocs “.txt”
And copied my .htaccess to /var/www/htdocs as htaccess.txt
In the example from the apache website, I don’t get the: AddType text/example “.exm” Where did they come up .exm?
