I've inherited a poorly designed web app, which has a certain file that needs to be publicly accessible, but that file is inside a directory which should not.
In other words, I need a way to block all files and sub-directories within a directory, but over-ride it for a single file.
I'm trying this:
# No one needs to access this directly <Directory /var/www/DangerousDirectory/> Order Deny,allow Deny from all # But this file is OK: <Files /var/www/DangerousDirectory/SafeFile.html> Allow from all </Files> </Directory>
But it's not working- it just blocks everything including the file I want to allow. Any suggestions?
