I'm planning on moving my Magento store from one server to another. The current server is an Apache server and I just got notified the new webserver will be an Nginx server. The hosting company noted that the new server doesn't support .htaccess files.

Since I already have a store I am worried what I should do about my existing .htaccess file

  • Have you made any modification to you htaccess? Does your new host support Magento setups? May 18 '15 at 12:13
  • @brentwpeterson I haven't made any changes to the file. And yes, they do support Magento setups

Since you new Host will support Magento and you have not made any changes to your htaccess you will not have to do anything. Keep in mind that your htaccess file is now redundant and any changes you make will not apply to your site in the future.
