Scrap htaccess

Scrap htaccess
On two separate servers now I've had problems making the server recognise htaccess files. It makes me wonder, why not build the password into the software itself? This means one less possible problem to encounter when installing the software.

On one server I had some dumb tech guy insist htaccess was switched on, when in fact it wasn't. I ended up having to ask a Linux savvy friend to sort it out.

A pure cgi based password protection scheme is not as good as .htaccess. By ensuring you have .htaccess setup properly, it makes the admin safer and harder to access. This is worth the extra trouble during installation.
