Safe Place to Store Digital Files for Sale
« on: January 30, 2018, 09:43:36 am »
VM3's 'Media Files' is, I have read, the place to store media files for sale.

Is this a safe place to put them? I understand that to negate otherwise public access, such files have to be stored 'above' the public html folder.

Is there a standard, secure practice here to follow?

Thanks in advance!  :D

You should use a folder in your 'Safe Path' for that. But probably you will need an extra plugin like this one for managing your sale of virtual files: https://extensions.virtuemart.net/checkout/shipments/shipment-for-virtual-products-detail
