The link is basically saying don't use the .htaccess file at all. I
haven't done this on the zend server on my i, but I have on some other
pages just running apache on linux.

Subject: [WEB400] .htaccess, CVE-2000-0234 and Zend

We recently installed Zend on a system. Since then we are getting
dinged on
a Qualys security scan.
.htaccess contains authentication information.
Unauthorized users can gather authentication information from this
Change the Apache configuration so the .htaccess file cannot be
accessed via
the Internet.
The Exploit-DB
Reference: CVE-2000-0234
Description: Cobalt RaQ 2.0/3.0 - Apache .htaccess Disclosure - The
Ref : 19828
GET /.htaccess HTTP/1.1
Connection: Keep-Alive

I see .htaccess in two directories:

How does one: "Change the Apache configuration so the .htaccess file
cannot be accessed via the Internet."?

I tried googling that but all I found were descriptions of the
benefits and risks
of using .htaccess file.
The first google hit should have been the "end all, be all" as it was
a qualys

However I could not find the answer in the link offered. Then again,
it may
have shot right over my head since I'm not even up to the beginner
level in
apache configuration.
