.htaccess


#1

I set up htaccess for my site to prevent people from hotlinking my zip files. It isn’t working. Is this something that takes a day or longer?


#2

No, there should be no delay. A .htaccess file should have an immediate result.

Perhaps you could post the contents of your .htaccess file, someone may be able to spot the problem.

I found how to do it. I had to block certain sites.

my problem is dreamhost keeps changing the site
from: gersonlima2005.spaces.msn.com
to: msn.com

I creat the file, everything is fine, the site cant hotlink. Then 10 minutes later it’s changed automatically and the thief is hotlinking again


#4

Why not just prevent hotlinking all togeather? You can do that straight through the panel > Goodies > Htaccess.

Or, why not poste the contense of your htaccess file and let someone here help you figure out what’s not working.

Mattail is correct, you don’t have to specify a domain to block, you can tell it to block everything except your website.
