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.
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 </Directory>
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.
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?
I have 2 domains on 1 account. My main website is www.aviationcafe.net and i added on www.modelcuir.com thats what it looks like to the public. But with my host it will be www.modelcuir.aviationcafe.net.
I noticed in the files area that modelcuir is it's own file, i can password protect that but it will stop people getting onto the website completly and i only want to stop them getting into the members area.
I can't create a members area either unless i can add a new folder which i can't i dont think.
Code: curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_BASIC); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, '[user]:[pass]'); but I can't figure out how to get past the login:

today i changed the password for the admin panel for a customer (username eg. mylogin). 10 minutes later he called me and said that he cannot get into his emailaccount anymore. Checked the password and saw that the emailpassword for his emailaddress (eg. firstname.lastname@example.org) is now the same from the admin panel login. So i changed the emailpassword and checked the admin panel login - it now has the emailpassword. What a mess.. I'm running Plesk Panel 11.5.30 MU47.

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.
i have a dedicated server with CENTOS Enterprise 4.6 i686 on standard i have main problem that there is an account on my server that the password can enter the FTP account normally but not enter the Cpanel i see that if the coanel pass is 951753 he can not log in the cpanel but can enter FTP why this problem ? and how to resolve it
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)
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?
