.htaccess ~ Direct Linkers


#1

Recently i’ve been having people direct link from my hostee Mel of Elysium Designs. I’ve been trying really hard to make the .htaccess work, but i’ve been having a lot of trouble with it. If I upload it, it works but then it makes everything on my site and her site have the replaced image. It’s wasting up a lot of my bandwidth and people have been contacting the girl (She’s direct linking from more than just me) but she wont listen. Can someone help me with the .htaccess?

Website: Myprayerbeads.org , hostee: ed.myprayerbeads.org

Many thanxs <3

So where do I upload this .htaccess file at Dreamhost? Just to my main FTP folder or under each specific domain that I have hosted?

->link This is where you can learn more about .htaccess on Dreamhost

->link and this covers hot linking etc.

Thanks! I knew I saw that somewhere before.

Um, maybe I’m missing something and making a dumb suggestion, but you can set up htaccess directly through Dreamhost, by loggin into dreamhost.com, clicking goodies > htaccess.

Setting up that way, they also give you the option to prevent hotlinking?

Sorry if I’m making a silly suggestion :slight_smile:
