If you're going to open the files via fopen on the local filesystem,
your htaccess settings have no implication on this at all. For files
like this I store them outside of the web root and fopen them from my
PHP script and stream them to the browser. That is on a dedicated
server where I know no-one has access to the directory they are stored
in and it can never be found via the web server. Your mileage may
