(3.1 up to but not including 4)

NOTE: Since SilverStripe 4.0.0 this module has been superseded by core functionality (provided by silverstripe/assets - a part of recipe-core).

Installation Instructions

  1. Extract the module to your website directory, or install using composer: composer require silverstripe/secureassets dev-master
  2. Run /dev/build?flush=1

Upgrade Instructions

As above, this module is no longer needed in the SilverStripe 4.x release line.

Run dev/build followed by dev/tasks/MigrateFileTask. All secure assets will be migrated to your updated project.


This is a fairly heavy re-write of a community module (also called secure files module) by Hamish Campbell. Check that module out if you want fine-grained per member access control
