Securing Administration, Removing text


kkreations

Recommended Posts

ok, We secured my administration area but now it wants a password and login and we can't figure out what it is. The server said they also don't know.

Any Idea's? Or any clues how to change it?

 

 

Also when I try to remove the text on the first catalog page and make it say what I want it says I can't do it. In fact it says that on all the pages. could someone please HELP!

 

It wont let me change colors or anything.

 

 

Thank you

1> how did you secure it? with Password Protected Dirctory, or with a Log In Contribution?

 

2> all the Text is defined in the Langauge Folder, for example the main page text is in LANGFOLD/index.php

 

welcome_text

 

 

it also explains that on the Main Catlog page after you have installed it

ya, It keeps giving am an error when I try to edit it. when I try to go to where it says to go to change it I can't.

 

Not sure what I am doing wrong. I think I have something set wrong on the server but not sure.

It sounds like a permissions problem while trying to edit them from file manager or such.

 

It is a better to download them to your computer using a FTP program. Then make a backup copy of the file to be edited. Then make the edits in a PHP editor or Notepad. Avoid using FrontPage or a full function word processor (i.e. MS Word) because these can add formatting or other proprietary content that is incompatible with PHP. After making the edits, upload the files using the FTP program.

 

If you are unable to upload the files using FTP then there are permissions issues that you may need to get your web host company to help you resolve.

Rule #1: Without exception, backup your database and files before making any changes to your files or database.

Rule #2: Make sure there are no exceptions to Rule #1.
