hi all

does anyone how to configure a htaccess file to allow all visitors to see a directory? I've tried the folowing but it doesn't work:

<Limit GET>
allow from all
</Limit>

error log:
[path to file].htaccess: allow not allowed here

you only need htaccess file to password protect directory - used by so called simple HTTPauth.

cheers. but if there's a htaccess file higher up the file directory it applies to the directory i am trying to remain public.

it might be a good design idea not to make public directories inside private - best to separate them.
