Secure the admin area


Recommended Posts

Most hosts have a "control Panel" or something similar with a place called Password Protected Areas. It may also say cPanel. If so then you go there and tell it which areas you want to password protect and also which users, Just protect the whole admin folder.

If your host does not have this do a google search for .htaccess and .htpasswd generator. Several sites will automatically generate the code for you to place in these files, (You will have to create the .htpasswd file) and have tutorials on where to place them etc.

There are also numerous threads in this forum about these topics.

Here is a link to a site that shows an example of what to put into the .htaccess file and will generate the code for the .htpasswd file.
