enable http authentication/prtotect with htaccess/htpasswd 404 error


Recommended Posts

Hi there, i was using the admin panel in oscomm to update some security lapses, and i was prompted to enable http authentication by clicking a box that said "Protect With htaccess/htpasswd" and now the whole admin panel is down with a 404 error

ideally i'd just like to undo what i did

Thank you for any advice you may have for me!

in the htacess file i noticed these lines:

AuthType Basic
AuthName "osCommerce Online Merchant Administration Tool"
Require valid-user

is this something related?

@darylbeeThe .htaccess and .htpasswd files work together when the option you mentioned is used so you also need to remove the ,haccess file. in admin
