This will work, however; please take caution that this method will reveal your entire downloads directory. The purpose for the symlink to the public folder is largely due to being selective over the items that are placed within this visible directory. Although, if you want all data/download to be public, then absolutely this will work! Thanks @duk242
i just want to add a userfrom the htpasswd file who can access the folder.
but it didnt work just adding the user and passwd into the file
what do i have to edit in the aliases file ?
Require user <username> is the line that sets access permissions for logged in users
can i insert two lines for that ?
or how do i list 2 or more users ?
to add multiple users.
require user martin jane joe jack
hi, i successfuly create public download access using ondansetron solution.
the problem is every time i run RUN UPDATER in quickbox dashbord, it revert back to original. (it removes the public alias line)
so i have to edit again the aliases-seedbox.conf file.
how can i make this change permanent?
Change this to something like /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/public-download.conf and you should be ok.
