Can I disable the log in popup?

Hi. I have just signed up to the forum. I spent hours reading through the topics, and I have solved some issues that I have; however, I cannot figure out how to stop the log in popup window that comes up when a guest or customer visits the site.

 

By the way, osCommerce is fantastic!

 

Thank you,

Sherry

What does the pop up say?

 

The pop up is a log in window. It prompts you to enter your

user ID and password. It's just like the one that we get

when we go to the catalog\admin area of our own site, but

the customer is seeing it when they go to the catalog area of

to shop on the site.

 

Thanks,

Sherry

Oh.

 

You've got a .htaccess file in the catalog folder. Go into your control panel and remove protection for that folder.

 

Or you could delete it. If you delete it then it would be a good idea to re-upload the stock .htaccess file which you'll find in the standard distribution.

Thank you for the reply Alan. When you say...

 

Go into your control panel and remove protection for that folder.

 

...do you mean to go in and update the permissions? I went in and changed that particular file to allow Full Permissions to Everyone. I had my Mom try going to my site and she said the log in window is still coming up.

 

Did I do what I was supposed to do?

 

Thanks,

Sherry

No, did you install the software?

 

If so you must have password protected the admin somehow, you're getting that log in screen.

 

Well, you or someone set the same protection on the catalog folder as well. This is independent of the permissions.

Actually, my host installed it for me. I'll take another look at the Control Panel and if I still don't understand, I'll send in a trouble ticket requesting help from the host. They probably know exactly what to do.

 

Thank you for your help.

I appreciate it.
