In my webhosting package, the primary domain points to the root of my file system and any extra domains that I add point to subfolders.
The problem is, the .htaccess for the primary is influencing not just the primary website's files, but also secondary websites in the subfolders. This is causing confusion and is not very desirable.
So, is there a way to tell the secondary websites to ignore all .htaccess statements bleeding down from the root? Or do I have to explicitly override each statement in each .htaccess each time I add/change the one in the root?
(It is shared hosting so I have limited control, but any answers gratefully accepted as I may be able to use this to hastle the provider).
