Hi all

I want to create some htaccess files for redirect, errors etc. but I'm not sure if I would have to create a seperate file for each task, or if I can include the code for each task all in one file e.g if I want a redirect for my site, plus custom redirect for 404's etc, plus say IP bans, can these all go in one file or do I do separate ones? And where do they need to go - in the root file of my site?

I'm pretty new to this so any help would be much appreciated.
