While modifying clients WordPress sites I don’t download the uploads directory contents so to avoid 404s in Chrome’s Developer Tools console I modified
.htaccess to redirect those URLs to the live site. Tested in a docker container.
Some Ukraine and Russian folks don’t know how to behave so I decided to block the whole country. Also they’re not target audience for the targeted web.
SetEnvIf GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE UA blk
SetEnvIf GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE RU blk
Deny from env=blk
They were causing 509 Bandwidth Limit Exceeded on some client webs with Joomla
Finally figured it out how to set custom error_reporting in specific directory without changing the global configuration, this prevents me from forgetting setting it back.
This is useful when I need to hack something in Joomla or other older CMS 😛
Just add the following line into
php_value error_reporting 6135

During some redesign projects it’s handy to have the images (other media) rendered, but sometimes it could be a struggle to download from specific paths.
For WordPress sites I use the following htaccess rule:
RedirectMatch 301 /wp-content/uploads/(.*)$ http://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/$1
Than for other, custom stuff:
RedirectMatch 301 /media/(.*)$ http://www.example.com/media/$1
