Is there a way using CF to have a password protected folder?
Here is the problem. An engineering firm has a document
control system in CF. So all documents for a job are supposed to go
through the GUI. What is happening tho is people will go directly
to the document storage folder and make changes which messes up the
control of course.
So they have asked for a solution. 1 solution I suggested was
having all paperwork stored in a database. Question there is can
Excel, autocad, PDF, Word, etc documents be stored in a database?
Their preferred solution, because overall it will be faster
to implement, is a password protected folder that only the
application can access.
I checked the cfdirectory and cffile commands but there is no
password function in them.
how about moving the doc folder out of the app's web root
location no other users have rights to? just make sure that
the user CF
is running under has access to that location.
then the only way for users to access the docs will be to go
app, which will serve the docs to them...
