You might want to set AllowOveride to none for the root directory:
<Directory />
AllowOverride None
</Directory>
See docs http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#allowoverride for more info.

I switched from using htaccess files to <Directory> directives.

Other than deleting my old htaccess files what else can I do to sop/prevent htaccess files?

Should I add “ AllowOverride None” to each directory directive that I created in httpd.conf or is there a “global” setting in httpd.conf?

 

Thanks
