I would like to generate my export files (jpg's) to have a GUID or a UUID filename.
for example it to spit out something along the lines of:
The idea behind this is that I have been trying to secure my client access area on my website, however without much luck. I was thinking GUID's or UUID's might be the way forward for people to find it harder to guess what the filenames are and to stumble across them by guessing the filenames.
I understand that this is not the best way to “secure” the files but it is the only way I can think of to make it a bit harder for someone to stumble across the filenames of them.
I have been looking and thinking, the best solution for these filenames is to use a random bunch of characters and then use the date & time stamp somehow in the filename.
