Rb A trivial technique for making any plugin file available to the Web server is to simply copy these files into the application's own public directory. rb file, so the files will be copied as soon as the plugin is installed. 1 shows how to achieve this. This code snippet assumes that your files will be stored in a directory in the plugin called assets, and in subdirectories therein mirroring the corresponding subdirectories in the main application's public folder. 1. rb An alternative to this approach is to have the files copied each time the server starts.

In a worst-case scenario, you could allow malicious users access to sensitive information, including passwords and server configuration details.
