I'm able to upload files to the default data directory created by the CPanel Fantastico auto install. I'm just a little concerned about the warning "Note: files placed here can be accessed by anyone" message that appears on the files management page. I'm aware that in the install documentation asks that we protect our files by creating a file in the data directory called .htaccess, containing this line: Deny from all
Can anyone tell me what this file is please? is it just a html file or a txt file with that line? Will this file prevent unauthorised access to course material?
I'd like to make directories for each course, so if anyone could help I'd be very happy!
