i'm new at this, and i managed to create a directory and create a link to it from my homepage. it worked no problem. but now, i'm trying to create a "hidden" directory, which has no link to it from the main html page. what i want is for somebody to have to type in the full address (which they would have to know) in order to access it. i created a folder and put an html page in there, just like i did for the directory that i have a link to, but it's not working. the only thing i did differently (i think) is i didn't add a link to it from the main page - which i don't want. but i get an error when trying to access it. it says "Forbidden...You do not have access...", and then there is a secondary error that is a 404 error. I changed the permissions on the folder itself (the supposed new directory), but that doesn't seem to work. do i have to somehow reference it by adding something to the main html page? i don't understand why this isn't working. please help, thanks!
