Protecting Images Folder


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone knew of any problems associated with adding an htaccess file to the images folder. I've checked the header status and the image link pop ups are 200 ok after the file was added. I am just trying to deny viewing the images/ directory folder for customers. I searched to see if there is a better way, but could not find any previous posts. Much appreciated. Nic

This works:


Copy the text in the CODE box below:


header ("Location: http://www.yoursite.com/catalog/index.php");

Edit this part of the code:



Change that to the URL of the page you want people "snooping" in your images folder to get redirected to.


Save it as index.php & upload it to your images folder.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
