I need to store files behind public_html to keep unauthorized people away from the files. I found directions on changing the absolute path, but ever since changing the absolute path, I have not been able to create a file/link that will produce a page that can download a file. I keep getting a message that the file can't be found. When creating the file, it pulls up the list, so logically the phoca software has access to it.
There are two things that I may have done that may have caused part of the problem. I made a folder to hold the files on the same level as the public_html to cut down on clutter. The file is called "audio". I also am trying to decide between Joomla! 2.5 and Joomla! 3.0, so both versions are installed in folders inside the public_html, respectively j25 and j30.
I am not sure as to the effect of having to step up an extra folder level or down into another folder might cause. putting ../../../audio in the absolute path box allows phoca download to create new files from an mp3 stored there, but gives the error message when any attempt is made to download. I have tried other inputs in the absolute path, but received messages that the "path is not a folder."
I am at a loss.
