    Hi, I'm a php developer and I have a site with quite some media on it, that suffers a lot from hotlinking. Now I'm thinking of enabling hotlink protection, but I would like to redirect to a php page. In that page I would like to get hold of the filename that the person was trying to get, so that I can show a page displaying a link to the files (so they are actually aware that they are on my site).

    Say they try to get /somepic.jpg, I would like cpanel to redirect the user to /getfile.php?file=somepic.jpg or something like that.

    Is that possible?
