For those of us who aren't Unix geeks, what does the following mean please ?

Securing directory with .htaccess

<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
</Location>

Regards, John.

It says:

Line 1: "Deny access before you grant access."
Line 2: "However, deny access to everybody."

Apache will block all attempts to access content in the folder (/ = root) and its subdirectories.

Thank you.

I obviously wasn't clear enough with my question. I wanted to better understand what "Securing directory with .htaccess" means.

(1) Does that mean create a text file called .htaccess, with the mentioned info, and put it in the forum's data files directory ?

(2) Also, can one reply to messages in FUD and quote the previous message ? I don't seem to see a way here to do that.


Regards, John.

You don't have to bother, FUDforum will create some '.htaccess' files for you during installation. Just in case you put the data files in a web accessible directory. Which, of cause, you should never do!

Just click on the "Quote" instead of "Reply" button or use the relevant QUOTE BBcode tags.
