Admin Password


Recommended Posts

I have tried to use the control panel supplied by my web site host to password protect the admin directory. It seems that I shouldn't have tried to set up a password this way because of the htaccess file which is already present in the directory structure so there is a conflict and I'm not able to enter user names or passwords via the control panel.


However it must have done something as when I go to the admin page now via my web browser it asks me for a user name and password and now I can't get into it at all. I can't see the htaccess file using my file upload programme so I can't remove it manually to let me gain access again.


Any advice would be much appreciated.

you can go back in via the host cpanel and remove password protection and then readd it again. it is not a conflict causing the errors. you can use the file manager via your host cpanel to remove the htaccess file also.
