I am wanting to create a seperate directory for my analytics program to function.

My website is www.loosebruce.co.uk and I want my directory to be accessible as


The same way phpmyadmin is accessible with /phpmyadmin

I added the following line to .htaccess file but it is not letting me get into that folder

    # follow symlinks & disallow directory listing
# note: your hosting company might not allow these directives to be set. In that case,
# you should either find another hosting company (advised) or remove the line below.
Options +FollowSymlinks -Indexes
DirectorySlash Off

# file etags (used when comparing local cached file to server file)

    # browser issues
    mod_gzip_item_exclude reqheader "User-agent: Mozilla/4.0[678]"

What do I need to do?

Do I need a seperate .htaccess file in the /analytics directory?


  • Where have you installed the analytics? If you install it in the directory you want it to be found, you should not have to do anything or much of anything at all. You should never need to create separate .htaccess files. You can of course. I have. But it is not necessary. You should be able to work from one single .htaccess file in the web space. What problems are you having specifically??

  • It is in /var/www/analytics Feb 21, 2015 at 17:17
  • What is the problem you are seeing??

  • Try putting DirectorySlash On in the top of your .htaccess file. This should work.
