Another trick in the wall: .htaccess and sites/all/default/files access
Another trick found in a fresh Drupal migration from a local environment to a service provider:
I used Drupal 7 for the first time but i think that it’s a problem that touches also Drupal 6.
I used a module embedded in the Drupal installation called slider, that use Jquery for a slideshow in a header on the front page.
It load some images that slides every 10 seconds. The default path of the images is sites/all/default/files directory that Drupal uses for the public files.
In my first attempt i moved the site to the hosted location, i changed some directives in the root .htaccess but i ever minded that i must change also the .htaccess located in this directory.
This file is created by Drupal at install time and every time that it doesn’t find this file.
For my purposes i must change the file that has these directives:
After this everything worked fine.
