    Sorry I don’t speak english very well.

    I want to protect the files in a particular folder from direct URL entry in browser.

    So, I put an .htaccess file in this folder. Now impossible to navigate in this folder with a browser.

    .htaccess content is :

    order deny,allow

    deny from all

    If I click to the icon to download, it results in corrupt file. Download with right click (save as…) works fine.

    If I delete the .htaccess file, all works great.

    Do you understand what I mean?

    I don’t know what to do…

    What can I do to protect this folder and to get Easy Folder Listing Pro can download the files in it too (without corrupt file)?

    @Flooder. Thanks for using my plugin and for posting here. i am not an expert on htaccess files. However, here are a couple of resources that may assist you:



    Then, how would you protect files in a folder from direct url entry?



    Related .htaccess question. Easy Folder Listing Pro 2.2 is being used with Joomla 2.5 to look at specific subdirectories within the joomla root directory. Access to the plugin is restricted to Joomla registered users. Some (most) of the subdirectories of interest have .htaccess control, limited to a group of users that is identical to the group to the group of joomla registered users. What happens is that the user must first log in the web site. Then when he starts to use easy folder listing pro, he gets the standard user name and password box that is generated by .htaccess. So he has to enter a user name and password twice. Is there a way to avoid having this double challenge? The files in these directories are not intended for the public. Note: I don’t need to use .htaccess if there is some other effective way to keep the files private.
