VERY URGENT - INSECURE

Hey guys, I have spent the past 3 days building an oscommerce store and it looks stunning, but I have ran into a big problem

 

When I go to www.mystore.com/admin

I can log straight in

 

The system does not ask for a username or password

 

This as you know is a very serious security risk

 

My store is on a linux platform, i am running the very latest version of oscommerce, and database etc

 

Can anybody offer advice or do I need to start all over again ?

My guess is that you have a template that is an older version of OSC. The very latest does secure the admin.

 

You will have to set a password on your admin directory by using your webhosts control panel filemanager.

If your webhost use Cpanel you can protect the admin folder with "Password Protect Directories".

 

 

Yes, I have cpanel, but forgive me for being a thickie, I have no idea how to do this or where to look

I am totally new to all of this
