Direct Linking


#1

Hey, I was wondering whether or not you could use a direct linking script on a CDI plan.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

What does that mean? What sort of script are you thinking about? Would it link to your domain from anyone out there or from your domain to anyone out there?

In general, DreamHost has no limitations about linking in either direction. They allow practically anything that is legal.

Oh, I mean a .htaccess file. However, I’m asking because what I used did not work for me.

I also did try Goodies >> Htaccess/WebDav except it introduces problems. Even though it prevents people from direct linking, it doesn’t allow you to add more images/pages to that particular directory that you link protected.

Thanks so much for replying to my question though!

In the .htaccess part of the Panel try using the feature “Forbid linking to files in this dir?” instead of using WebDAV. This feature is intended for what you want, and that’s available to all plans.
