renamed .htaccess to .htaccess-dist and ignored .htaccess afterwards (#5428)

* renamed .htaccess to .htaccess-dist and ignored .htaccess afterwards. This
allows local changes to it without having a dirty checkout directory.

Signed-off-by: Roland Häder <>

* Some fixes:
- removed non-neutral words
- added examples for Linux/Windows

* Better documentation and added note about **not** renaming the file.

### Prepare .htaccess file
Copy .htaccess-dist to .htaccess (be careful under Windows) to have working mod-rewrite again. If you have installed Friendica into a sub directory, like /friendica/ set this path in RewriteBase accordingly.
cp .htacces-dist .htaccess
*Note*: Do **not** rename the .htaccess-dist file as it is tracked by GIT and renaming will cause a dirty working directory.
### Set up the worker
Set up a cron job or scheduled task to run the worker once every 5-10 minutes in order to perform background processing.
