s2Member Secure File Browser is a wordpress plugin for browsing files from the secure-files location of the s2Member® WordPress Memberships plugin.

Requirement : you need to install first the wonderful and free s2Member® plugin available here
s2member Secure File Browser is very easy to install (instructions) :
* Upload the
/s2member-secure-file-browser folder to your
* Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress®.
- s2Member secure files are always directly downloadable, how can I protect them by forcing php handling ?
It is recommended to add a
deny from alldirective in your
httpd.conffor your s2member-files directory in order to avoid people directly access your protected files. Do not put the
denydirective in the
s2member-files/.htaccessbecause this file is always regenerated by s2member and your modifications are always overwritten.
- Why s2member-files/.htaccess is not displayed ?
Even if you set shortcode option
.htaccesswill never been displayed.
- Are directories `access-s2member-level*` protected if they are not in the root directory ?
And access-s2member-ccap*too !
- The browser does not work, it displays `Invalid nonce` for registered users.
The authentication on your website is broken because of a plugin (AJAX requests not correctly handled).
This behaviour is correct and it is protecting your files !
It happens for example when your authentication is only performed in a HTTPS form and the navigation is done in HTTP.
If you use the
WordPress HTTPplugin from http://mvied.com/projects/wordpress-https/ for example, you have to force HTTPS on each page which includes the s2member Secure File browser.
- How to handle the `s2member-files/app_data` windows directory ?
In windows installations, put all files in
