Restrict Access to files...

Go to solution Solved by mac_gyver,

Hi, I was wondering but how would I make it so that people when on my site can't access certain files like 'footer.php' which is used as an include in PHP like so:


include 'footer.php';



Basically I just want it so if the person tries to access domain.com/footer.php it'll return an error. Thanks.

put the "included" files into a folder that doesn't permit any web access. there's two ways of doing that -


1) put the folder outside, rather than inside, your web root folder




2) put the folder inside your web root folder and put a .htacess file into the folder that deny's all http requests to the files in that folder. search for "htaccess deny all" to find out how.
