How can I protect my Web site HTML pages, graphics, etc. from being viewed, and/or manipulated by casual viewers? IOW, what do I need to set up so that if someone tries to go to “www.mysite.com/pics” (for example), they would get a “no permission” message?
There are two ways I can try to answer your question, actually. There’s the far more complex question of how do you protect the content of your pages from prying eyes, and there’s the simple question of how do you make it so people can’t browse your “images” or “pics” directory.
