I have files on my server that I don't want people to access. such as the /template directory which contains .tpl files. How would I deny access from all the files in this directory and the directory itself and display a page such as the error 404 method?

If the files are being called from the server and not the client, you can put this .htaccess rule in the directory you'd like to keep private:

<FilesMatch "...">
Order deny,allow
Deny from all

Also, this isn't an HTML/CSS question. Moving to General Web…

Or you could move the folders out of the web-accessible directory. Or put a password on them with .htaccess.
