I would like to prevent users from viewing the source of certain php pages in my site. This is for security reasons. If anyone simply downloaded the pages using wget or something similar, the entire site could be compromised.
Is it possible for me to enter these pages into a .htaccess protected directory and access them either as includes or my linking to them? I already tried linking to them straight up, but of course it asks for the htaccess password.
Is their any other way to protect the code?
