    Hey everyone

    I have a webfolder that contains .html/php/gif/jpg files. I need to create a .htaccess script that will prevent users from viewing any files in it other than php files.

    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    This Google search turns up some tutorials on using .htaccess files:

    I've never used .htaccess to protect individual files (as opposed to entire directories). One of the tutorials recommends putting this text in the .htaccess file:

    <files *.html>
    order allow,deny
    deny from all
    </files>

    You'd have one of these clauses for each type of file you wanted to hide.
