The e-commerce.

N00b about protection question


Recommended Posts

I just installed oscommerce for the first time. And I went to administrator config and it said I should fix some stuff... And I misread it and deleted .htpasswd_oscommerce. And I'm not sure how the fix the other one either, I changed it to writable but this still shows up:


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:

  • /storage/content/21/104221//fashionistica.se/public_html/admin/.htaccess
  • /storage/content/21/104221//fashionistica.se/public_html/admin/.htpasswd_oscommerce

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

Using your FTP client, upload a replacement file of .htpasswd_oscommerce to your /admin directory. Once you have done that, ensure the files have a permission of 644. Then, log into your admin area and secure your admin directory by enabling .htaccess protection.
