Please can you tell me how the Protecting Individual files part of the tutorial http://www.4webhelp.net/tutorials/misc/htaccess.php works.

i.e.
Protecting individual files
You may wish to protect a single file in a directory. To do this, set up the .htaccess file like this:

AuthName "Realm Name"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /.htpasswd
Allow From All
<Files file.xxx>
Deny From All
</Files>
This would password protect file.xxx only.


Why doesn't this need a Require directive?
Why isn't there an Order directive (is it because order deny,allow is implicit as it is default? or is there another reason?)

Thanks

I remember a game from the playstation 3 that had a big problem because they forgot to add a htcaccess on their web site, releasing more than a million of game codes out on the open. Though they were able to get back with the codes, banning those which were released and subsequently used, they could have avoided it with just a few steps. So I can guarantee that learning this will really be beneficial.
