I see this file in both Magento one and two, I would like to know what is its functionality in Magento because I have read some articles about it that explains that this .htaccess
"file is a configuration file that affects how a web server responds to various requests. It is supported by several web servers, including the popular Apache software used by most commercial web hosting providers."
can Magento function without the file, any edit you can do for extra or advanced functionalities?
this is all I found in my Magento website.
Order deny,allow Deny from all
