Securing Folder

  Epocs 11:07 02 Jul 2004

I have created a program using HTML and PHP to access a mySQL database using Apache. This site is secure from unauthorised access from the internet or intranet, however the PC it is run from is not secure as it is used by many different people; some will use the software on the machine it is installed on. This means they are able to go into the htdocs file and can edit the PHP files. Does any one know how I can prevent access to the htdocs folder in the Apache directory but still allow access via the web browser?

If your using Win XP Pro get the administrator to allow limted access to that folder for read only.

Unfortunatly it will be running on either '98 or XP Home.

It was on the May edition of PCA. It creates a host file protected with a password. The drive is invisible to users unless it is opened with the password.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will try folder lock, however I think that these programs will prevent access via internet Explorer as well meaning the program won't run.

I have found a partial way round this problem, if I set the folder to hidden it at least can't be accessed by the casual user. However if someone knows a bit about computers they could set folder options to view hidden files, but I can't think of any other options.
