CPanel And Password Protected Directories

Dec 16, 2007

I was wondering if it would be advisable to use the Password Protected Directory option in cPanels to limit part of my website to no more than 1,000 paying customers (yearly subsciption). Can cPanels handle this? Would accessing .htaccess and .htpassword to authenticate be too slow? Would management become too much? Has anyone attempted this? Are there any good alternatives such as open source programs? I've looked and found a few that are expensive and do way more than what I need.

Apache :: 2 Username / Password Protected Directories

Aug 7, 2014

I have been trying to get password protected directories working on my Linode server. It works / behaves in a desktop browser somewhat but not like I am used to with hostmonster. Also for some reason my phone (windows phone just loads the page in the protected directory without prompting for a password. So I imagine there is some security thing I am missing that none of the info I have found searching talks about. Here is what I have done. I have created a password file and set the permissions correctly on that and it works on the desktop. However when I close the browser or open a private browsing session I am never prompted for a password again. It just feels insecure. Plus my windows phone just loads the page with no prompt. With hostmonster if I closed the browser window it would ask me for the username and password again. I also tested hostmonster directory passwords on my phone and it prompts for a username/password.

Here is what I have added to the apache2.conf file. The rest is pretty much default. There is no .htaccess file for that directory.

<Directory "/var/www/protected">
AllowOverride All
AuthType basic
AuthName "Enter Login"
AuthUserFile /etc/htpasswd/.htpasswd
Require valid-user
Order deny,allow
Allow from user1

It may be worth noting that I have two virtual sites / domain names running on this server at the moment however the one that is being used for this is the primary domain name.

OS: Debian 7.3
Apache 2.2.22

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Password Protected Directories - How To Limit Login Attempts

Oct 16, 2014

Plesk 11.5.30 Update #47

When I look in a directory password protected by the Plesk Panel, I don't see an .htaccess file...

So, how does Plesk password protect directories?

And, is it possible to add functionality that would limit number of login attempts, and block an offending IP for a period of time?

Feb 17, 2008

A client wants to FTP some files to my server but I don't want him to see/have access to all the other stuff on the server. Is there a way that I can 'corden-off' an area for him to FTP stuff to? A password protected area perhaps?

How To Access Password Protected File Via Curl

Nov 19, 2007

I've got a file I want to access via cURL that is within a password protected directory.

I've tried sending:

$headers = array(
"HTTP_AUTH_LOGIN: admin3e",
"HTTP_AUTH_PASSWD: opensesame",
"Content-Type: text/html"

curl_setopt($curl, CUROPT_HTTPHEADER, &$headers);


curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, '[user]:[pass]');
but I can't figure out how to get past the login:

Authorization Required

This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.

IRC Ddos Protected Server - US

Mar 20, 2008

Budget: $120-175. Decent amount of IPs (32+ preferable)
Need it relatively soon.

GodsHost/Awknet is out of stock completely.
Staminus is out of stock except for $700 servers.
Gigeservers has a $150 setup fee that I don't really like, but if desperate, maybe.
Sharktech is **** and there is no way I will even consider them.

DDoS protected meaning nothing too large scale - I just need basic protection against 12 year olds that have pbots.

Any other ideas?

Getting Protected From DoS Attacks With Apache

May 17, 2007

Firewall settings are great for preventing Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, however it may not always be your only solution. The day has finally arrived when I found this excellent module called mod_dosevasive (DoS Evasive) which keeps track of how many requests each client makes to your server within intervals. If a client is being forceful with your server and making too many requests, then it is more than likely not just a web browser but some automated process unleashed on your site to try and take it down.

This handy Apache module we have found takes care of these issues. Let's get started by setting it up.

Cpanel Password Changing

Nov 22, 2007

am having some issues with cpanel's password changing. password of a user changes fine from shell, changes fine from WHM. however no luck in the user's cpanel.

error i get is:


There was an error manipulating the password file. This generally means you entered your old password incorrectly.
The following services were updatedif any)

Changing password for user xxxxxxx.
Changing password for xxxxxxx
(current) UNIX password:
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error

i'm looking into this user's directory, and oddly see that the /etc/<domain>/passwd and shadow and quota files are all 0 bytes. but i can log in with the password i set from whm.

permissions on these 3 files are -rw-r--r-- which seems normal, plus ownership is <username>-mail.

Cpanel Password Change

Mar 17, 2007

I searched the forum articles but couldn not find specifically what I wanted..
just learning with my dedicated server...

I want to change my cpanel password and ftp password but NOT change the msql server password. I tried to do it in WHM it also changes the database to my website and causes it to go down. (so I changed it back)

I tried to change it under: [URL to actual WHM removed] Password Modification in WHM but it changed the databse program as well.

Again all I want to change is the Cpanel acces and main FTP pass

Im doing this to keep old programmers out of my server)

Reset A Client's Password In Cpanel

Apr 21, 2009

I use WHM and have a client that lost access to cpanel because the site's owner (an organization) turned over the management of the site to a new person. The previous person never used the site so he forgot the password to get into cpanel and ftp. I can login to the site using my WHM password, but I cannot change his password in cpanel because I don't know the old one. How can reset it?
