Additional Protection With htaccess/htpasswd

I am receiving the following error message:

 

Additional Protection With htaccess/htpasswd

 

This osCommerce Online Merchant Administration Tool installation is not additionally secured through htaccess/htpasswd means.

The following files need to be writable by the web server to enable the htaccess/htpasswd security layer:

  • /xxx/xxx/public_html/admin/.htaccess
  • /xxx/xxx/public_html/admin/.htpasswd_oscommerce

Reload this page to confirm if the correct file permissions have been set.

 

Problem: It seems that there is no .htaccess or .htpasswd_oscommerce in either of the directories mentioned above. I am not sure how to go about performing the actions mentioned above without the files.

 

Best,

 

Chris

If you are using 2.3.1 just grab these files:

 

.htaccess

.htpasswd_oscommerce

 

From the original zip file under the admin directory and upload them to your server. Then delete your admin account, setup a new one and check the "Protect With htaccess/htpasswd" option when you do.

 

Peace,

Chris
