Protecting Admin!!
Hi

I wonder if anyone out there can help? I have managed to get Links up and running and all is well other than the fact that my server administration staff do not appear to be able to password protect the admin directory. I am running on an NT server and I have placed the following files in the following locations and asked them to set the permissions accordingly:-

That all the .cgi files are set to:

chmod 755
IUSR/MACHINENAME: Read,Execute
IWAM/MACHINENAME: Read, Execute
Everyone: Read, Execute
Admin: Read, Write, Execute

The following directories contain .cgi files:-

localhost/cgi-bin/links
/add.cgi
/jump.cgi
/modify.cgi
/rate.cgi
/search.cgi
/subscribe.cgi

localhost/cgi-bin/links/admin
/admin.cgi
/nph-build.cgi
/nph-email.cgi
/nph-verify.cgi

That all of the files in the following directories;
localhost/cgi-bin/links/admin/data
localhost/cgi-bin/links/admin/templates
localhost/cgi-bin/links/admin/data/links.db.bak
are set to:-

chmod 666
IUSR/MACHINENAME: Read, Write
IWAM/MACHINENAME: Read, Write
Everyone: Read, Write

That the following directories;
localhost/links/pages
localhost/cgi-bin/links/admin/data/hits
localhost/cgi-bin/links/admin/data/rates
localhost/cgi-bin/links/admin/backup
are set to:-

chmod 777
IUSR/MACINENAME: Read, Write, Execute
IWAM/MACHINENAME: Read, Write, Execute
Everyone: Read, Write, Execute


They can successfully password protect the directory but that seems to alter all the permissions and hence the script won't work. I know very little about NT but I am sure that this should not be such a major problem, they seem to be at a total loss which is even more frustrating as I have actually paid for this service. If anybody can help it really would be appreciated! For instance can I restructure the files/locations or alter the permissions? and if so would this make a difference?

thanks in advance as always
Paul

By the way, they say they do not support .htaccess!

Struggling! But getting there (I think?)
