Leeching


#1

I don’t really know where I should post that so I’ll ask here.
I am putting up a few downloads for friends and I dont want to have people leeching.
How to make it so that it will not accept the connection unless it comes from a certain page on my forums?
I hope its possible

The easiest way to prevent the files from being linked from outside your domain is by using .htaccess directives. You can either manually create the .htaccess file, or use the panel at Goodies -> Htaccess/WebDAV.

More information can be found in the wiki article linked below;
