Hi all !
Is it possible and normal to move a movie (swf) file from the public folder / path to a folder outside the root directory so that the swf may not be directly invoked by any user?
The image above shows the directory structure of my website on my local host. public is the public accessible folder and private is outside the root. With the files placed as shown, all works great. The index.php invokes test.php which has the movie (/movie/movie.swf) embedded in it. Everything works great.
But when I move the movie from the movie folder in public to the movie folder in private, the movie stops working !!?? It displays the first frame and freezes there.
I will be grateful if someone can shed some light on this and can help me get it working from the private folder if that is possible.
Thanks all !
