Security:

Given the installation instructions are so long-winded, it occured to me that many installations may be incorrectly set up.

Here's a script to install .htaccess files. It uses the subdir-htaccess.txt and pub-htaccess.txt files and overwrites index.html.

Unless you have followed the process you may find that the URL /twiki/data/ exposes the raw data to your topics, making TWikiAccessControl completely irrelevant.

I will eventually replace this script as a CommandSet for the TWikiShell / TWikiSDK and, so, in turn, part of Will's installation script.

Might be more friendly to rename the index.html file first, rather than overwrite it - unless the installer script warns people first.

This became tools/fixHtaccess.pl in DevelopBranch's SVN. It is not distributed with TWiki
