I am not sure how to do this, but I want to block all access to a specific set of folders on my web server. Say secret01 and secret 02...
homeDir |- data |- www | |- .htaccess (file) | |- images | |- js | |- secret01 | |- secret02 | |... |...
What rule(s) do I need to add to my root .htaccess file to do this? I want all access from the web blocked from going into these folders, period. Only way one could get to them would be over
SSH. So what rule am I looking for? I am preferably looking for a one-liner so I can add more folders or move it to another site down the road. I really would prefer if the rule could be placed in the .htaccess root file so I don't have to jump all over the place to lock and unlock folders.
= Update for Clarity =
I do not have access to the conf file for this host (it is in a shared environment) and I need to have these folders inside the webroot for a few shell purposes. If I could I would have already moved them up out of the webroot.
I also don't want to screw with the file permissions, just have a rule in my
.htaccess that blocks web traffic from accessing a folder or set of folders.
