Hi David

Hope you are keeping well, in the httacess file you use "Options -Multiviews" could you explain what this is for as i've tried looking it up but can't find anything except about -Indexes.

Hi Chris,

It disables the "Multiviews" aspect of content negotiation which is unnecessary for a PHP based website - it is functionality that is intended more for document management where content is available in various formats and Apache does various pattern matching against the request and all files (and even directories) to decide what to serve.

Of course if mod_negotiation is not enabled then the directive is simply ignored...
