Hi Experts!

Is it possible to obfuscate the folder where a file to be downloaded is localized by using a PHP or even HTML resource?

By example, say a file called xyz_app.zip is located at the folder bellow:


My PHP application doesn't allow to go to a page that addresses directly to it until defined rules in the site are fulfilled, but If someone know where the files remains could go directly to that address without fullfill the needed rules -  and I aim to avoid it.

Thanks in advance!
