How do i block someone from downloading the misc.foo files that are in my www path. i want to block all .foo files from being downloadable by a person putting that filename in the URL request.

I'm not sure if this is still the best way, as I haven't updated in a while, but I used a URL Redirect to accomplish this.

This is the Regular Expression:

Code:
^(/dirs/|/to/|/exclude/)(.+(\.php|\.etc))


and it reports an error to the client, a 404.

This will prevent any PHP or ETC files from being delivered from those three directories.

boris,

Lawrence's suggestion is good. There is also another alternative by using IP access rules:

1* Open Abyss Web Server console
2* Press on the "Configure" button in the "Hosts" table
3* Select the icon "IP Address Control".


4* Press "Add" in the displayed table
5* In Virtual Path enter:

*.foo

6* Set Order to "Allow/Deny"
7* Press "OK"

Repeat steps 4-7 for as many extensions or dirs with extensions that you have to limit (as in /dir/*.foo or /dir/path)

8* Press "OK"
9* Now press "Restart"

This will result in anyone trying to access these files to receive error 403.
