yep the /downloads directory is directly off the root directory.
When I deleted this /downloads directory and recreated it and put the downloads inside it, the /downloads directory was 744 and the files were 644. But they wouldn't download. Only CHMOD the directory and the files to 777, was the only case in which they would download. I tried other combinations too.
I don't have an .htaccess file in /downloads My root .htacess file has this in it..
Deny from all
Should this be something else? Then why would it work at CHMOD 777 and nothing else. What should this read as?
I haven't checked any logs yet. I wouldn't even know how to edit the server config. This is just a basic hosting account using cpanel.
