Files outside Web space?

    If I use mod_rewrite with php_include, which uses your rewrite.php to access my files, does this mean that I can place all of my files OUTSIDE of my Web space for added security?

    Presumably rewrite.php effectively mirrors my own directory structure, for example, if I have:

    /root/myaccount/data/directories/
    this would appear via rewrite.php as:
    /root/myaccount/public_html/data/directories/

    No, you place .htaccess file into protected folder, and to access file, user must be logged-in. User will get login prompt if he is not logged-in.

    You can download trial version and try it if you wish...
