Is it possible to set Apache's AllowOverride directive to All

Is it possible to set Apache's AllowOverride directive to All

The AllowOverride directive in the Apache’s configuration has been set to ‘All’ on all servers.

Thus, you are able to use a local .htaccess file and define options such as:

#Enable mod_rewrite and insert some sample rules:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
#RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(/component/option,com) [NC,OR]         ##optional – see notes##
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|.htm|.php|.html|/[^.]*)$  [NC]
RewriteRule ^(content/|component/) index.php

#Enable security mod:
SecFilterEngine On
SecFilterScanPOST On
# SecAuditLog logs/audit_log # Not sure what my host would think of that…
SecFilterDefaultAction “deny,status:412”
# WEB-ATTACKS wget command attempt
SecFilterSelective THE_REQUEST “wget ”

#Set different handlers for scripts:
AddHandler nonworkig .cgi .pl .py

Note: Do not use an .htaccess file to specify PHP settings. PHP settings can be changed only with a local php.ini file.
