How does this compare to, or alter, the previous method of
password-protecting uploads? Running 2.1.x, I've been using the method of
1) setting  $EnableDirectDownload to 0 in config.php, and
2) having uploads/.htaccess with:
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all

Now I've upgraded to 2.2.5, and looking over all the 2.2.x changes, I see we
have http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/UploadVariables#EnableUploadGroupAuth,
which says: "Set $EnableUploadGroupAuth = 1; to authenticate downloads with
the group password. This could be used together with $EnableDirectDownload =

I'm confused -- if I'm already setting $EnableDirectDownload to 0, what does
EnableUploadGroupAuth do?

Is the difference some change in the file uploads/.htaccess?

Instructions at http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/SecureAttachments don't
reflect any change, other than to add a "See Also" link to
