Publishing to a folder 'above' the root
CD calculates relative addresses relative to the 'root' folder. Some files should be stored outside of the root folder for security reasons (eg db connection string files). It would be easy enough to rig my folder structure to allow for this, but then the relative addressing done within CD wouldn't work, since it uses the top of its folder tree as the root directory.
One solution I've implemented: rewrite the URL strings where necessary using BKReplaceEm or similar.
Write the connect string in a file outside of the file structure and put it there manually. Then put a file that's publically available that INCLUDES the file outside of the directory structure.
Thanks Mark. Nice idea!
