How Do I sercure the Admin part of the site


Recommended Posts

what do you mean, exactly?


get the padlock to show in admin? or to password protect it?


the only way i could get the admin padlocked was to put my store in htps and use the admin there.


To password protect you need to make an htaccess file.

AHH, okay.


Htaccess goes in the admin directory.

AuthUserFile /usr/local/psa/home/this is the path to your file/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName EnterPassword
AuthType Basic

require valid-user


This goes in the directory you specified in the file above.


The password needs to be hashed, and you can do it for free here:



also, save the files as ALL FILES and thre file name IS .htaccess and .htpasswd


I hope this helps you out :)
