.htaccess Question


OJB

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I am currently installing my new website on the new server I bought but during my local development I never really bothered fixing a problem I knew the site had.

 

Basically, I allow users to upload stuff to folders like this:

 

public_html/upload/1

public_html/upload/2

public_html/upload/3

 

they are dependant on their user_id... so in effect, user_id 1 uploads to public_html/upload/1 etc

 

 

These folders are created dynamically in PHP, but I also want to restrict access so users can't get the directory listing of those created folders.

 

The problem is, PHP allows you only (i think) to create files in the directory of the script, which is not going to be in those folders... I had planned on when i created a new folder i would also create a blank index.html to hide the dir. listing.

 

I imagine I can block directory listing etc using a .htaccess file somewhere, problem is that I am a complete tool when it comes to .htaccess.

 

Could someone point me in the direction of how to about doing this?
