HI guys.

when i configure Files in this way:

<Files ~ "\.png$">
    deny from all
</Files>

it works. but when defining in this way it doesn't work:

<Files /var/www/test/file.png>
    deny from all
</Files>

Directives are not inside Directory directive. Could someone help?

If you read the apache manual it says that Files directive should be coupled with the Directory directive. Therefore to achieve the functionality you are looking for use

<Directory /var/www/test>
 <Files ~ "file\.png">
   deny from all 
 <Files>
</Directory>
