For those using subversion, here is how to protect your svn files with .htaccess.
Working with subversion, it’s important to not store the
.svn files on a public web server. Such files may contain passwords and other sensitive data. So to protect any svn files from prying eyes, add this snippet to the site’s root .htaccess file:
# protect svn files RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^(.*/)?\.svn/? - [F,L]
Or, if you’d rather not invoke the majesty of mod_rewrite, roll one up with mod_alias:
# protect svn files RedirectMatch 403 ^(.*/)?\.svn/?
Bada boom bada bing.
