Securing the Admin Tool

"Securing The Administration Tool

 

It is important to secure the Administration Tool as there is currently no security implementation available."

 

It says this in the middle of the new shopping cart where it gives some instructions about changing text etc.

 

How do I add an admin log-in?

 

Thanks

1) Change admin name to something new and unique that only you know

2) Go to cpanel or plesk or whatever your host provides for account mangement and set user \ pwd for the newly named directory in there

2a) If you cannot do it that way you may have to do it thro .htaccess \ .htpaswrd

3) Set the paths in your admin/includes/configure.php to point to the newly named admin

done

Charles,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Is adding a password needed or just recommended?

I dont believe you can add a user without assigning a password
