Evevn though my problem is in PHP, but its related to the linux security so i tought that this is the right place to post this query. if not sorry.
i m new to unix / linux env , and i m developing a php application which is running on linux server with apache.
to control the admin files of our application we added a .htaccess file to our admin folder (where all our admin files are located).
but now at one part of my application i need to read the contents of one file in that folder(admin) using fopen , that time because of .htaccess , its not allowing me to that..
so is there any way to pass the user name and password from my php prog to .htacces file, or is it possiable to deny the .htaccess to one particular file in the same folder.
Thanks in advance.
