[SOLVED] Forbiddent to view .txt


Recommended Posts

I was wondering is their a way i can make the  text.txt file execute when using fopen, but when i visit the file directorally it will display a forbidden message?


I've tried chmodding, the forbidden message displays but fopen wont work


This is my code:


//I want the url to be forbidden, so vistors can't access directaly
//But the trouble is if i chmod the above file the below code wont work
$fp = fopen($url, "r");


All help is apreciated  :D

Tested, it makes the folder and protected files forbidden but fopen wont work.


Warning: fopen(http://domain.com/text.txt) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden in /home/me/public_html/test.php on line 9


Any other way?

Use a file system path to open the file with. When you use a URL, you are causing your web server/php to make a http request back to itself, just like a browser would, to read the file. Using a URL also takes about 100 times longer to read the file than if you were reading it through the file system.
