The e-commerce.

New Installation ? Security for Admin?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am playing with osCommerce on my home server, I am thinking about setting up a store soon. I am new to Linux and web servers but I have learned a lot in the last few months.


I seemed to have everything working fine after config? my question is about security for the admin functions.


Right now I am looking at the Administration page at the url http://mydomain/username/ oscommerce-2.2ms2/catalog/admin/index.php


But can?t anyone navigate to this url and mess things up on my store? I?ve used other php and MySQL web programs in the past and they always had a admin password.


Perhaps I missed something in the install about setting this up? I couldn?t find any reference in the documentation.


I know I can just change the permissions on the server to make this directory not viewable to the web, but then every time I want to change something I would have to alter the permissions.


What am I missing?
