Question: How can I prevent others from downloading my Snitz Forum Access database?

Answer: There are several things you can do to decrease the possibility of your database being downloaded.

1. Place your database outside of your main web folder.

For example, if your web files are stored in c:\somedir\yoursitename\html, create a database directory at the same level as c:\somedir\yoursitename.

You'd have both these directories:

c:\somedir\yoursitename\html
c:\somedir\yoursitename\database

NOTE: You'd have to change the path to your database in config.asp.

2. Change the name of your database.
You don't *have* to name your database snitz_forums_2000.mdb.

You can use any sort of naming convention -- (Don't use spaces in the file name, though)

Example: dfasd54354.mdb

3. Change the name of your database directory.
You can also change the name of your database folder.

Example: fsadwetsdf5

You can use any combination of the three solutions offered above. As a bare minimum, implement #1.
