Just wondering if I can grant/deny access with .htaccess to my downloads folder in OC?
I also have a little script which enables folder listing for the folder it resides in,

Will this conflict with OC in anyway?

Many thanks!

That seems like a lot of work to me.
If its just to stop the user viewing the directory root you could just place an index.php page in there that has some html on it that says "NO ACCESS" or "ACCESS DENIED" Most of the open cart folders already have this.

Or in your htaccess...
Code:

Code: Select all

RewriteRule ^uploads/$ /error.php
Customize the error.php page to read something like "YOU ARE HERE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TRIED TO ACCESS A FOLDER THAT IS NOT ACCESIBLE".

Thanks very much for your reply!
Just to make sure and be totally clear, perhaps my 1st post was not, coupled with the fact that I am a noob.

The downloads folder in our case is full of WAV and MP3,
We want our artists/DJs to be able to download from there, folder listing is disabled for the entire site,
Hence the little script to enable it only for there and then grant access with a password thru htaccess only for them,
While still using the downloads folder for active sales,

Any issues with this? :)

Many thanks again!

Just stick an index file in there like I suggested. That way you can't get to the root of the folder and see ALL downloads. Reference each download privately via URL to the customer.
