Out of the box, Paid Memberships Pro will give you many options to lock down your WordPress posts and pages. PMPro also comes bundled with a script to lock down media and file attachments uploaded to protected posts; you just need to add a line to your .htaccess file to direct traffic to those files to the bundled script.

You can also lock down non-WordPress files and entire directories of files using Paid Memberships Pro. The basic method is the same: (1) add a mod_rewrite rule to your .htaccess file to direct traffic to the directory and file to a special script, and (2) run a script to check for membership before serving the file.

Below is sample code for your the rewrite rule and the script to serve the file along with a description of how it works.
