    Default Secure Login Database from people guessing filename.

    Hello.

    I have create a access DB for my login security. However, if someone
    guesses the path to my database, they can download it and open it and view
    all the usernames/passwords.

    How do I keep people from doing this?

    I'm running IIS 5.0 and using DW MX

    Thanks.

    Some ISPs give you a folder that does not have browse access. My ISP
    gives me two folders - one called htdocs, for all my web pages, and
    one called Private. I put my database in the Private folder. See if
    your ISP is able to do this for you.

    If you have your own server, then it's easier. You just make a
    folder,giving no read or browse access.
