You can check the server platform my placing a file, e.g. called "test.php", in your root directory. It should have the following contents:
- Code: Select all
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Fetch this from your browser and you should be able to find the platform info. (Delete it afterwards.)
I'm not sure if GoDaddy supports .htaccess files -- it should, but again, every server is different. You can use a .htaccess file to add a password to the files path, thus preventing users from fetching your submission files directly. See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/howto/htaccess.html
for information on .htaccess files.
