Use Htaccess File To Disable Downloading Of Anything In The Directory

Aug 10, 2008

I am using a flash media player on one of my domains that streams music. The flash player would be like

The mp3 files are located in

The flash player just reads the title of the song and displays it in the media player.

I have used htaccess already to disable indexing, but the file name that shows on the media player is the exact name of the mp3, so I'm pretty sure people will be able to easily figure this out and start downloading our music.

What else can I add to htaccess to allow localhost access to the music, to stream with the flash player, but wont allow downloading of the mp3s.

File Size (content Length) Not Showing When Downloading Files

Jun 30, 2009

When I download a file from my server, only specific extensions are working. This is really annoying since I want to be able to see how much time left to finish a download.

For example I uploaded a video with .vob extension
file.vob --> does not show filesize when downloading

If I rename the same file to different extension:
file.avi --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
file.mp3 --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
file.rar --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
file.mp4 --> does not show filesize when downloading
file.wmv --> does not show filesize when downloading

These are direct download links, not using any download scripts or anything. Why are some extensions displaying the filesize and some not displaying them? I am using Apache 2.x server.

.htaccess Disable Bandwidth Leeching

Sep 21, 2007

I have alot of .swf, .mpeg and other video files. I am afraid that someone is leeching them from me and embedding them on their websites.

I heard I can use .htaccess to specify on what domains the video files can be used. I would like the video files to be viewed on a couple of websites, but nothing else. Is there a way to do it?

Also, can I give a default replace file? For example, if someone is leeching a .swf file from me, they would see a very special .swf that would say "this content is stolen, go to to view it" etc?

Htaccess File Not Working

Sep 11, 2006

I'm wondering why sometimes my htaccess files don't seem to work, especially when contained within subdirectories. I've got two problematic situations:

(1) I've got a mod rewrite that supposedly works. I put it in a subdirectory like /dbase/stuff/ but the script ignores it like it just isn't there. Permissions don't change anything and they are currently set to 644. It's very simple and only contains the following code: ....

Htaccess File Size

Oct 25, 2009

I manage a high traffic website on one of my dedicated servers. It currently serves around 2 million uniques/mo.

In time, due to page changes, around 200 important URIs got a redirect [L,R=301] in the main .htaccess file that's sitting on the root directory.

Redirects are in the form of : person/J/James_Blake_2000/ --> /user/James_Blake/

Thus, the .htaccess file has reached well above 200 lines.

I would like to kindly ask for advice: should I limit the dimension of this htaccess file ?

How do you guys treat these permanent redirects?

Php.ini And .htaccess File Permissions

Aug 17, 2008

I'm on a shared FreeBSD server, running Apache with Drupal, and vBulletin.

I had to create a local php.ini file in my public_html folder for Drupal, and another in my forum folder for vBulletin. Now my question is, what should I set the permissions of these files to? Also, what should I set .htaccess permissions to as well?

I'd like to keep them invisible to the public. But, I don't want any problems with Drupal, or vBulletin ether.

I'm used to using Linux and I know how permissions work on a desktop. I just don't know what they do when used on a server. I'm guessing 640, but I'd like to make sure before I change anything.

Htaccess Redirect (from A File With Spaces)

Nov 26, 2006

I'm trying to redirect from a filename that contains spaces using .htaccess

for example, I want to redirect /test 2.html to

I've tried:

ReDirect /test 2.html
ReDirect /test 2.html
ReDirect /"test 2".html
ReDirect /'test 2'.html
ReDirect /test%202.html
ReDirect /"test 2.html"
ReDirect /'test 2.html'

And a few others. I can't seem to get the syntax right, and always end up getting an internal server error message. Anyone have any ideas?

Apache :: Write HTAccess File For A 301

Apr 15, 2013

I have learned some bits of regular expressions for simple scripting, writing a .htaccess file is, uh, syntaxically daunting.


The URLs of my site used to be of the form [URL] ... . They are now of the form [URL]......

I am trying to perma-redirect (301) the old format (affiche_fiche.php) to the new format (fiche.php) using a .htaccess.

So far all I have achieved is a hatred of punctuation signs. What's the correct syntax to have a .htaccess that does the redirect ?

THE CONTEXT : The format change took place more than six months ago, but the Google Webmaster Tools still spits 450 problems a day with 404s on URLs using the old format. I had assumed that these would just fade away, but they don't. So I guess that 301'ing them is cleaner. Or would be, if I understood the syntax.

How To Disable Apache Generating Coredump File?

Jun 28, 2008

Recently I use suphp with fcgi on my cPanel Server. When I apply RLimitCPU for each vhost, I see that some scripts that potentially overloading the server is killed. I think this is a good way to control load on server.

But each time a php process killed, apache create a coredump files under users's directory that is large enough to fill user's space limit.

How to disable apache from creating core dump files?

I have try:

- set "ulimit -c 0" on users and root
- set "/proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable" to 0
- set /etc/security/limits.conf with 0 limit for core parameter
- set CoreDumpDirectory to specific directory ...

Use .htaccess File To Allow Access To Zip Files Only From My Script

Feb 18, 2007

I have download manager script that I use for my customers to download products right after the purchase.

Script generates download link that looks like this: (where 2YY6582921B is receipt number that is different with each purchase).

All products are placed in one folder. This folder can not be seen in above download url, but can be accessed thru browser and files can be downloaded that way without paying for them.

Can I use .htaccess and if yes how, to protect all product files the way that they can not be accessed directly by visiting url thru browser (in case somebody will find the correct url), they should be allowed for access only for my download manager script.
