  • htaccess'ing includes dir?

    Is it ok to add an htaccess password to the includes directory or will it cause problems?

    Thanks.

    You can try but I'm pretty sure your forums will stop working.

      Actually, vB gets the files via the system, not though the web, you should be able to htaccess off the includes diretory without a problem as far as I can tell.

        You can password-protect the includes directory.
        You can even put .htaccess

        Code:
        <limit GET POST HEAD>
        order deny,allow
        deny from all
        </limit>
        But honestly, I don't see a real reason for that.

          My apache web server had a fit and started serving all php files as downloads, thus people could have downloaded the config file if they wanted to.

          Thank you for the replies.
