Is it possible to see .htaccess file of any website?

1274

Ex. I open http://www.gustdial.com lt via browser, can I somehow access/open/download .htaccess file of this site?

I read that .htaccess is visable to any browser if it's not hidden by apache. Does apache block access to .htaccess file by default?

It depends on the type of the webserver in question. If it's apache, it should contain something like this in the config file (usually in the "main" apache.conf):

# The following lines prevent .htaccess and .htpasswd files from being 
# viewed by Web clients. 
#
<FilesMatch "^\.ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    Satisfy All
</FilesMatch>
