Single-User License

After purchasing the book, you are free to create/use multiple copies of the book on different devices, but only for yourself (i.e., single-user license). Each digital copy of the book contains a unique security key and is identified with your purchase information (name, email, et al).

Forum Rules

Your purchase gives you free lifetime access to the .htaccess Help Forums. When posting questions and responses in the forums, please use common courtesy, avoiding things like profanity, rude or offensive language, slurs, threats, etc. The forums are there to provide help, so if you need to vent about something, please choose another venue.

Users who refuse to abide by these simple rules will be banned temporarily, like a timeout. I also reserve the right to edit or delete topics and replies for any reason, which usually is for formatting purposes and to keep things legible.

Getting Help

When using the forums to receive or provide help, please use clear language so that others may understand what you're saying. If you're including code, please wrap it with <code> tags. Linking to other sites is allowed if relevant to the discussion.

In the forums, I try to use my experience with and knowledge of .htaccess to try and help people with their questions and issues. I've been designing and developing websites for over 10 years now, and almost all of it has been on Apache servers. I enjoy helping people with .htaccess, but there's no guarantee that I (or anyone else in the forums) will be able to provide a solution to every question. We'll do our best though :)

With regards to the book itself, billing, invoices, and so on, contact me for help.


A working list of changes to the book and template files is available in the ChangeLog.
