How to prevent .htaccess file modification while running easyapache

Normally the recompilation process of Apache/php with Easyapache will be effected the user’s .htaccess file under the WHM/cPanel server.

After the Easyapache, we might see some entries like the one pasted below in .htacces file.

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php .html .htm

We can prevent the .htaccess file modification from the WHM tweak settings itself.

In WHM-> Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings -> System
Depth to recurse for .htaccess checks = 0

See the attached screenshot:
