Is the .htaccess file under the "assets" folder necessary?

So this morning, I was having a bit of trouble logging into the admin section of silverstripe. Every time I tried to, I'd get a bunch of javascript and other browser errors about not being able to find files, classes that were missing/undefined, and subsequently, things would stop at the "loading" screen. I checked and re-checked permissions, re-uploaded everything again and again, tried different browsers but nothing seemed to work.

Finally, I discovered that removing the .htaccess file under "assets", fixed the issue completely.

However, I'm guessing that file was placed there for a good reason and I was just curious as to whether or not its a good idea. If its not, then is there a fix?

Is this an installation on your local machine or remote web host?

I believe the .htaccess file in assets may cause issues with hosts that use PHP as FastCGI instead of mod_php5 on Apache. Do you know if that is the case?

Update: You can try patching the file like this: http://open.silverstripe.org/changeset/113809/phpinstaller

See if that helps.

It seems there's more threads popping up about this subject, this http://www.silverstripe.org/general-questions/show/14861 is one for instance. Turns out my host is using FastCGI, so will try the patch and report back.

Yep, solved it for me as well. Thanks Sean!

(Perhaps link to the patch in the upgrade/install instructions for 2.4.3?)
