Securing Folders

Is there a way to secure folders of PDF files?

Thanks,

You would need to do that through the server configuration.

on an apache server, it c an be done using an htacess file:

password-protect-directory.shtml

if you mean to deny access to the folder to view the files within it then all you need to do is add a .htaccess file to the folder that you're protecting

heres a thread on it (last post is about the htaccess file):

You will need to contact your host for help with securing a folder on the site on a windows server.
