.htaccess file should be at the home of the website i.e. /var/www/html or something similar. Let me know if looking something different.

I really don't understand some things about htaccess. Reading, the advice is: never permit htaccess to users. So, can I enable htaccess but only for personalize something like this?

ErrorDocument 400 /errors/badrequest.html
ErrorDocument 401 /errors/authreqd.html
ErrorDocument 403 /errors/forbid.html
ErrorDocument 404 /errors/notfound.html
ErrorDocument 500 /errors/serverr.html

and obviously deny all other directives? so an user with own htaccess file, can only personalize that directives.

I have problems making successfully a rewrite rule for my Webapplication (CodeIgniter) with mod_rewrite.

In my ".htaccess" file, I have the following rewrite rules:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^[css|js|fonts](/.*)?$ /static$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

But the 1st rule doesn't work, neither I know if the rule was correct.

I want first:

/css/* -> /static/css/*
,/js/* -> /static/css/*
/fonts/* -> /static/fonts/*

and anything else


The second rule seems to work. But the 1st rule makes me headache.
