Is there an easier way of Pasword protecting Admin?
Step by Step without adding an array of other programs?

1) There is a Tutorial/Modification for creating .htaccess/.htpasswd files in the Resource Center in the Links 2.0 section.

2) There is an ADMIN PASSWORD MOD posted in the LINKS Customization Forum, which was written by widgetz.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MOD IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON MY SITE BECAUSE JERRY SU (WIDGETZ) ASKED ME TO REMOVE IT. ALSO, PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO E-MAIL IT TO YOU SINCE I SHALL IGNORE ANY SUCH REQUESTS. I KNOW THAT THIS IS FRUSTRATING; I HAVE ASKED JERRY TO RECONSIDER BUT HE DOES NOT WISH TO EXERCISE REASON. Frown

YOUR BEST BET IS TO USE THIS LINK: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...ew=&sb=&vc=1

I have made the modifications to admin.cgi that were written by Widgetz. There are a couple of errors in the posting (an extra curley bracket or something like that). Anyway, I have the script working, with all the necessary files for download. This may save AnthroRules (Eliot) answering the same question every couple of weeks! Here's the URL: http://www.cebidae.co.uk/download/. Copy the files (make sure you backup your originals in case you have any mods) and edit admin.db replacing admin|admin with your userid and password. Make sure there is no CR otherwise you won't get past the login screen. Checkout Widgetz comments in the forum: search for ADMIN PASSWORD MOD. Hope it helps. Smile

Also, see this link in the forum: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...ew=&sb=&vc=1.

Thanks for clearing up the errors and posted the revised codes...(Hope that you credited Widgetz as being the original author of the Mod).

Yes, there's a text file in the zip archive. He gets all the credit.

Thanks for reiterating the codes posted in the FAQ, however, they are incomplete...you have not provided information about creating the .htpasswd file.

I know but with the function " valid to use " it uses htpasswrd which is already in the server. Therefore not necessary create another password

at home Ca goes... He He:)) I recommend however to carry out a test with the prealable on a directory test

What? Not true...

.htpasswd files have to be created from telnet OR use encrypted format of username:password via FTP.

And for those NOT on a RAQ3 or dedicated server, guess what...not that easy...you have to create the .htpasswd file.

And since you have refused to post instructions on how to do this...I will link to my hosting company's .htaccess faq:
