When to utilize the AcceptPathInfo Apache directive in an.htaccess file is covered in this article. This setting is necessary for some software programs to operate properly.

Pathname information in URLs:

By default, trailing pathname information cannot be included in URLs. Take the URL http://www.example.com/page.html/pathinfo as an illustration. The Apache web server will produce a 404 Not Found error because pathinfo is trailing pathname information in this URL.

The Moodle course management system, for example, uses URLs with pathname information, which prevents it from working properly. The AcceptPathInfo directive is used to enable pathname information in URLs.

You should include the following line in your .htaccess file to enable pathname information in URLs:

AcceptPathInfo On

To disable pathname information in URLs, modify the appropriate line in your .htaccess file as follows:

AcceptPathInfo Off
