User Access Manager
No restriction on file downloads (6 posts)

    Plugin works really well for restricting access to posts/pages...

    ...but although on upload files can be "restricted" to user groups, that doesn't happen. It creates a .htaccess file - but doesn't prevent file downloads.

    (Shame - if it did that it would be perfect.)

    I am having the same problem. Is this an active plugin? The creator have not posted anything here for two moths.

    Hello,
    I also have the same problem.
    I have tested the plugin with Xaamp. Everything worked fine.
    Using the plugin on the real webside, no restriction on the upload-dir is available.

    Solution would be fine, because this plugin is exactly that what I was looking for.

    Greetings

    Hello,

    I'm not sure wether I'm having the same problem, because on a single install it works, but on a MU it does only partly work for subdirectory blogs.

    If you try to access the file via domain/subdir/blogs.dir/#/files/.../filename it's locked. If you call domain/subdir/files/.../filename it isn't.

    I try to add a rewrite rule to the .htaccess in the main directory, but sofar I only get 500s. Lots documentation ahead ...

    Hello,

    I solved the problem:
    In the httpd.conf "AllowOverride" was set to "None". So the webserver was not able to read the htaccess.
    Now, everything works fine.

    greetings.
