Prevent template files from being downloaded

Since WHMCS puts its templates in a publicly accessible location, if don't tell apache to block visitors from seeing these files, anyone can download/view your template files. If you have any custom tweaks to your template files and you don't want others to be able to view them, just add the following to your .htaccess file in the root of your WHMCS installation.

 

<Files ~ "\.tpl$">
Order allow,deny
Deny from all
</Files>

This would be better done from within the server configs, htaccess can be bypassed

Theres no way (that I know of) to bypass Deny from all statements in .htaccess files. Apache treats .htaccess files just as it treats statements in the main httpd.conf file (with a few restrictions on usage).

 

Now if you're talking about authentication via .htaccess (Auth Basic), thats a different story.
