The store admin directory on your server needs to be password protected using .htaccess. Most of the time the server you are hosting your store on has the ability to password protect directories through the server administration area so check with your host.

 

I'm not familiar with .htaccess since I am using a Windows server, but in Windows, you would need to change the permissions for the admin folder so that the Internet Guest Account has no access, and then set up a user that you will allow having access for that folder. When accessed from the web, since anonymous access is disallowed, it will prompt for a username and password as defined in .htaccess or the Windows Permissions.

Does your host have a panel (like cpanel?) where you can set access/passwords?

If you have it use it.

Not sure? contact your host.

 

If you don't have it, go to Google ans search on .htaccess. You'll find lot's of tutorials.

 

Another option would be a contribution with admin access.

Forum search

Contributions search

Documentation search (note: docs being adapted for MS3, may be different for MS2)
