Deny directory access but allow execution
need help with a small .htaccess problem

 3:17 pm on Oct 16, 2005 (gmt 0)

I guess this is an easy one for .htaccess gurus, unfortunately not for me :-(

I have a directory with a Javascript that is called from some of my pages. How do I prevent people from downloading the script to their computers without disallowing my own site to execute this script? Would be most greatful if someone could post the necessary .htaccess code.

JavaScript is executed client-side -- in the browser.

Therefore, you can't prevent it from being 'downloaded' since that is the only way the browser can execute it.

Thanks, Jim!
