Followed instructions at (https://www.drupal.org/docs/develop/using-composer/using-composer-to-install-drupal-and-manage-dependencies) to install Drupal with Composer using the command:
"composer create-project drupal/recommended-project my_site_name_dir"
Composer download all the files and displayed that Drupal was ready to install. However, when trying go to the page in a browser get "Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. "
Looking in the "my_site_name_dir" there is no .htaccess file so the server doesn't know to go into the "/web" subdirectory. The "my_site_name_dir" directory has only the following files: /Vendor /web .editorconfig .gitattributes composer.json composer.lock
Should the .htaccess file be created automatically by Composer? I thought Composer used to do this in earlier installations. Is there a recommended .htaccess template to use. Thanks.
Environment: Windows 10, PHP Version 7.1.20, Apache 2.4
