    not sure if this is the right forum, but seemed the best place

    i want to make one "pub" folder on my site viewable, since i travel a lot and would like to put certain files in there for easy access.

    i'm assuming i need to create a custom .htaccess file for that directory, so i dont get the "forbidden" message, but have no idea how to do this

    any help would be appreciated

    thanks for the speedy reply

    heh, didn't notice that!, but when I try those it still asks me for a username and password, I want to make it simply show the directory contents without requiring authentification, is this possible?

    Cheers,
    Raynor

    I tried that, but just got an internal server error when trying to view the folder, i'm guessing my host doesnt allow this kinda thing?

    i dont need anything else in .htaccess do i? just that text you gave me?

    Thanks,
    Raynor
