    How do i stop ppl from being able to access other files in the web root dir...?
    is it a script that i have to find or just some code that needs to be added...?

    Is ppl a user on your system? Do you want to be able to access the files with your webbrowser?

    There are normally the two commands chown and chmod to set the owner of a file and then set the permissions on it.

    Not sure if the others answered your question or if you were looking for more of an apache answer. If you are trying to stop people from viewing your images or css or any directory, then use this bit:
    <Directory /www/images>
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from env=linked_from_here
    More info can be found here
    Hopefully that helps.
