Making secure http://username.com/admin/inde

Hi,

 

My web designer gave me the link to my admin index back-office part of my osCommerce website. I click on this and get in nice and easily. Too easily because I don't get asked for a password. How do I change this please?

 

I am talking about the- http://username.com/admin/index.php bit not about my hosting admin area which is password secure.

 

Any other security advice you could give me would be most welcome too.

 

Thanks kindly, K.

Go to your hosting 'admin' area and look for a link that allows you to Password Protect folders on your website, and then Password Protect the osCommerce 'admin' folder.

If you can't do that look up how to make .htaccess files in any search engine

 

there are tons of tutorials on that

Hi,

 

I followed these instuctions easy to do but I can still access my http://domain name/admin/index.php back office bit with out a password?

 

[I]Use your server Password Protected Directories function to protect your shopping cart admin page. Login to your Site Administration Panel. In the shortcuts area, click Protect Directories (File Manager section).

 

If you have not done so already, create an HTAccess group, then specify the user or users who belong to the group. You need to create a at least one group and add at least one user to that group before you can protect a directory. Click Manage Groups.

 

Enter Group name and click ADD.

 

Click Manage Users.

 

Enter UserName, Password, select group and click Add/Edit.

 

Click Protect Directories.

Select the directory or folder that you would like to protect. For osCommerce users you need to protect /var/www/html/catalog/admin/. Click .

 

In the AuthName field, enter 'osCommerce Admin' as the descriptive name for the directory. Click Protect.

 

 

An 'X' will appear on the lock icon and the folder is now protected.[/i]

Hi. I followed the directions below, and now when a user goes to buy something from the catalog (a download, for example) there's a prompt for the admin password - is there any way to password protect the directory and NOT have it then prompt the customer for the password in the middle of the buying process???

thanks,

Eva
