Hi there, I have the file hosting website which I just started. I have it set up that there is a directory called "Files" where all the files are stored, then in a seperate directory there is "download" which contains the files needed to download a file from the files directory. So if you go to foo.com/dl/filename.jpg, it will download the file (using an htaccess shortcut, actual route is foo.com/download/index.php?file=filename.jpg). However, if you accessed this file directly by going to the source of the file, foo.com/files/filename.jpg, then you will be viewing the image. The more primary concern is the viewing of html or php files, I don't want a website hosting site to implant itself! How do I prevent the access of these files ONLY by my download directory, but not in the files directory itself? Thanks!
