Only allow to view images from a folder with simple .htaccess file
Once in a while my beloved hackers upload their shitty files into image folder (basically they use some plugin for image upload). In most cases I will go and clean website. As additional measure to block future attempts, I tend to add small .htaccess file to tell webserver deny access to certain types of files.
Just add the following code to .htaccess file and listed extensions will be restricted:
RewriteEngine On RewriteRule \.(html|shtml|php|php3|inc)$ http://www.nordichosting.com/ [NC,R=302,L]
and if visitor requests anything with extension html, shtml, php, php3, inc – he or she will be redirected to nordichosting.com. ?
with this example only listed extensions will be allowed:
RewriteEngine On RewriteRule !\.(jpg|png|gif|jpeg)$ http://www.golarge.no/ [NC,R=302,L]
