Does anyone have a hint how to do it?
Hi,ssddgreg wrote:I would like to switch from the login.php login to apache security (using the .htaccess file) for logging at phpwcms administrator part.
the first problem you have is:
The phpwcms administrator part is in the same directory as the cms itself! -> You need a lot of core code hacking to separate this! Because apache security works directorywise
You need to administrate your host to use Auth MySQL, mod_auth_mysql is needed for this. -> In the best case you administrate your host by yourself, or you have a very flexible provider.
and so on...
Just one question: Why do you wanna do this? I can't see any advantage, but a lot of work(for nothing)!?!

However, Apache htaccess is also not the best one for typing in username and pwd as a string. I will move the login.php to a subfolder and add .htaccess protection on it.
Thanks again for your comments.
