Stop Apache serving .DS_Store files – or any files

May 19, 2011 by The Man

If you view or copy files from a Mac to a webserver it will place .DS_Store files in that directory. To fix add in your http.conf or .htaccess file

    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    Satisfy All

Then restart Apache for this to kick in.
