To block .log file using .htaccess, follow the steps below:-
- Go to your document root directory (normally it’s the folder name is ‘public_html’, ‘www’, ‘htdocs’ folder)
- Create a new .htaccess file (if you already have a .htaccess file, just edit it)
- Append the code below to your .htaccess file:
<Files ~ "^.*.(LOG|log|bak|bk|LCK)">
Deny from all
Now you can try to upload a test.log file to your document root and try to access it, you should be seeing “Forbiden Error” or messages saying you cant read the file.
