On my webhosting I don't have access to a root directory, so I am stuck in
the public folder.
I should secure the downloads folder, this is why I wanted to use a
Only, PHP should have access to this folder..because users login using a
username and password from the database.
How can I make an htaccess file which allows the "php-user" to access the
files in the folder on a Linux webserver?
Thanks in advance!
Re: php - htaccess
if i understand right you want to prevent people from downloading via a
direct link in your download dir. two ways to prevent that:
1. put your downloads in a database
2. use .htaccess to deny any http access to download dir and have php
read and deliver the downloads via the file system (which is not
affected by .htaccess, as dmitry wrote already), using i. e. readfile()
