I would like to know if I have the "deny directory browsing" would this make the website inacessable? I need to protect one of the directories where my video clips are at. but I do not want to password it because then customers would need to use a password everytime they access the video clips after they pay to download them by CC.
The server co. told me: Yes, we can deny directory browsing but this will deny all. I think we
can set .htaccess that can create one login info and then will not ask
for it again once you are inside. Is this what you want?
My programmer sent me this message:
"Just Ask the servr guys to deny directory browsing. That is all we need
[4:56:04 AM] Neel/Anna says: We will not need to work with .htacess and stuff
[4:56:25 AM] Neel/Anna says: caz we are proving link to a php file..
[4:56:43 AM] Neel/Anna says: and through the php file only then will get to download the clips.
[4:56:57 AM] Neel/Anna says: and the Php files expires the user in 24 hours.
[4:57:44 AM] Neel/Anna says: So all we need is to avoid The vistor to see all the clips in side the clips folder, through directory browsing.
[4:58:02 AM] Neel/Anna says: in case they find out teh directory in which the clips are stored
[5:00:30 AM] Neel/Anna says: So confirm to them that they can deny directory browsing
[5:00:48 AM] Neel/Anna says: That should be it."
Is there a way to protect a directory from being accessed without passwording it
I use FTP to upload and large files and move stuff around.
I hope I am clear on this..
Thanks in advance!!
