    The .htaccess is a distributed configuration file, and is how Apache handles configuration changes on a per-directory basis. WordPress uses this file to manipulate how Apache serves files from its root directory, and subdirectories thereof. Most notably, WP modifies this file to be able to handle pretty permalinks.

    The .htaccess file in your WordPress install is a powerful configuration file that you can use to override the settings on your web server.
