Setting up a forum - where do i put my database?

Hi. On the website I'm hosting on my server... I'm setting up a forum. Where should I place the microsoft access database so that the asp scripts have read/write access but internet people can't view it?

Thanks!

well, I made a new folder named:  

WebServe

I put my webpages in there.

I want to have a subdirectory inside webserve... like:

WebServer/DB

How do I set the permissions on DB so that internet people can't view or download stuff inside there?

I tried sticking in 'deny' permissions for IUSR_HOSTNAME    user, but internet people can still download the database sitting in the DB folder.


Thanks for the help!
