I Can access the admin area without a password and


Recommended Posts

The standard osc download does not have any security on the admin area. There are a varietyu of fixes for this, dependant very much on your knowledge levels and just how secure you want it to be. One of the most common methods is to use .htpassword and .htaccess, but a very simple method I have seen used many times is to change the name of the admin folder to something obscure such as h2evbw or something, this means only somebody knowing the name of that folder can access it. Search the contribs and the knowledge base and you will find a quick and easy solution to suit you.

Please note - if I have suggested a contrib above, it doesnt mean it will work! Most of the contribs are not ones I've used, but may be useful for your particular problem....

Have you tried a refined search? Chances are your problem has already been dealt with elsewhere on the forums.....

The simplest way to fix this, (and i'm sure least secure) but none the less simplest way. Is to rename the admin folder, and change the references to it in configure.php


Vger has allready educated me on this aspect, and if you search the forums you will find her very good instruction on how to do this.


All the best,
