Summary0002775: Filedump permissions by folder
DescriptionEnable the ability to set permissions by folder for the filedump.

The first permission would be "direct access". If this permission is enabled, then the folder and all files in it can be accessed everywhere, including by direct URL call. If direct access is enabled, then all view-type permissions should be disabled since anyone can view anything in it.

If direct access is disabled, then a .htaccess file will be created inside that folder to throw a forbidden message for any attempts to call files in the folder directly. Instead, viewing files inside that folder would have to run through Composr and its permissions checks.

Permissions available for a folder by usergroup include view access, add folder, edit own folder, edit folder, delete own folder, delete folder, upload files, edit own files, edit files, delete own files, delete files, and reference files in content (aka. attachments/media tag). There should probably also be the ability to change metadata such as file/folder add date, edit date, owner, etc. (at the very least, owner).
TagsNo tags attached.

Note that we can never make assumptions of server-specific stuff like .htaccess working. It can be disabled even on Apache.
