How do I prevent users from accessing a folder?

    Hi there

    I know it has to do with permissions but ...

    I have a folder that has a database and I want only server to be able to access it, not users. If a user knows a file name it can download the mdb file by default. How to prevent the user to download the file?

    I tried removing read access to the IUSER but it goes back to default :-( I guess it has to do something with children and parent propagating...

    an anybody tell me how to do it? Should I disable propagating to the child permissions?

    Plesk will configure this settings back and give IUSR read permission to that file.
    It is better to use Protected directory

    Aha, I thought of that... And I set user and password to it as jklfdjkldjkjksd :)

    PS - But this is a Plesk "problem", isn't it? In Windows I can configure using permissions...
