These directives also affect all subdirectories of the specified directory.
The AllowOverrides directives specify which configuration options .htaccess files can override. You can set this directive individually for each directory. For example, you can have different standards about what can be overridden in the main document root and in UserDir directories.
This capability is particularly useful for user directories, where the user does not have access to the main server configuration files.
AllowOverrides can be set to All or any combination of Options, FileInfo, AuthConfig, and Limit. These options are explained in Table 20.3.
