    Default Preventing Download of DB

    I want to prevent someone from just typing in the whole url to my database and download it... granted, getting the whole path will not be easily come by, but i just typed in the url to my database and it prompted "Save as" or "Open from location" to which i said "Crap", and then continued to download it... keep in mind, there are many passwords and stuff in the database. my idea is to change permissions on web server, but to what? thanks for any help you can give me.<BR><BR>Jason Connell<BR>

    Why don&#039;t you just put it outside your website? What type of database are you using? you can also set a password so that if someone did download it they could not open it.
