Sorry to all if this is in the wrong forum, I'll move it if someone tells me where it should go.
I saw another poster discussing some files stored above the root ... well here's what was posted:
"I have a script which generates invoices as PDF files and stores above just above www level (so they cannot be access directly via a URL)."
How does this work (I would like to use this)? If the files cannot be accessed via a URL, how are they accessed?
