how to prevent .htaccess file modification while running easyapache ?

Most of the time, the recompilation process of Apache/php with Easyapache will be effected the users’ .htaccess file under the WHM/cPanel server. After the Easyapache, we might see some entries like the one pasted below in .htacces file.

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php .html .htm 

Solution
We can prevent the .htaccess file modification from the WHM tweak settings itself.

In WHM-> Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings -> System
set 
Depth to recurse for .htaccess checks = 0

See the attached screenshot:
htaccess

That’s it… 🙂
