Protecting downloable content


Recommended Posts



Since there is a lack of infotmation on this I decided to reply myself with this way of protecting your downloable content from robots.


First... Create a folder outside your public_html. and name it as you wish.


Then modify the file in: catalog/includes/configure.php

and change:


define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'download/');




define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . '../../your_new_download_folder_on_the_root/');


This is just to make it difficult for robots to sniff your site since it's behind your public folder range.


Hope this helps someone too.
