How do I deny web access to a particular file?

Applies to: Grid System

If you have a file underneath your DocumentRoot (accessible to a browser) that you do not want anyone to be able to view in a browser, you can block access to it with a Files directive in an .htaccess file. The .htaccess file will affect all subdirectories below the one in which the .htaccess file resides.

For example:

<Files ~ "^somefile\.ext">
Order allow,deny
Deny from all

will deny access to any file that looks like "somefile.ext".

Please see the Apache documentation on the Files directive here.
