Title: Hot link protection ??
Post by: debo1990 on August 09, 2019, 09:01:41 PM
" Hotlink protection prevents other websites from directly linking to files (as specified below) on your website. Other sites will still be able to link to any file type that you donít specify below (ie. html files). An example of hotlinking would be using a <img> tag to display an image from your site from somewhere else on the net. "

- is this feature available in CWP?
- if not any possible way to implement in the server.


Thanks.

Hi, you can use .htaccess for that. Just copy the rules from CPanel or other server ;)

all in all, in Igor behalf, maybe not so much in teh forums has there been his support anymore..
He (and Sandeep) have been TOP NOTCH when you do Contact them/get them, with a support ticket.

There may be otehr reasons why teh "admins" dont/have time to react in the forums, as it is.. i'd personally
rather have them working ON cwp than ansering "Forum Questions" like useless ones asking how to "hot link protect"..

really?  there is a search engine called.. umm, "Google">  smh.

https://www.htaccessredirect.net/ (https://www.htaccessredirect.net/)

pretty easy to search for..

a 'useless' question, when all you needed to do was "google" it..

Cheers.

Google isnt the answer.

This is CWP and what applies to centos distros doesnt necessarily apply to CWP.  If we did what normal centos LAMP users did then CWP would crash and be totally useless.  So when someone asks a question, keep in mind that what they are really asking is will this work with my CWP app.

You are mistaken, sorry.
CWP used Apache and nginx and you can use any options they have. Some cases cannot be fixed "by photo" we are not guessers ;)
"To Google" is the answer if the question "how to do the best right now with the one CWP button".

And course, I said use support if I think the case should be checked with the root access.
