How to protect the content in a subfolder?

Hello,
I've an admin area (e.g. "/admin/) created with security's tools included in the latest version of Data Bridge.
Now I've a page that allow to the users logged to open pdf files, saved them in a subfolder (e.g. "/admin/orders/files/").
Is there a way to protect the content in this subfolder (e.g. .htaccess instruction that allow to see this files only for the users in the "pcms2_users" database table)?

Thanks.

The best way to protect files is to store them above the web root, and then use webassist file download server behavior to allow access to logged in users.

Hi Ray... do you have a tutorial about the "download server behavior"?

No, but it is pretty straightforward. Just apply the server behavior webassist->file manipulation->download file
