Bug on CBSubs Folder Access Plugin was created by fdesanto
if the user change password the plugin not update the .htpasswd file

I found this solution:
in the file /components/com_comprofiler/plugin/user/plug_cbsubsfolderaccess/cbsubs.folderaccess.php

Comment the line 190
//$user->cb_folderaccess							=	$this->password;

replace the line 225 with
$newContents	=	str_replace( $usr[$i], $user->username . ':' . $this->password, $content_file );

Thanks

The user object field value needs to be updated, commenting out 190 breaks this and results in out of date broken passwords on resync (when needed); I do not recommend this change. See the if check comparing the field value to the password.

Line 225 accounts for spacing and is multi-platform (windows and linux), using str_replace you'll end up with whitespace and user won't be able to login. Your change will also cause partial matches. For example bob:123 will match for abob:12345 breaking "abob" login.

It's already designed to update the password on profile update. Don't see how these changes would fix this if it was broken. Please clarify your proposal and as to what the exact issue is so can be investigated and fixed if issue is found. Please provide your server OS as well as will help determining what usage is failing.

ok, these changes are not good!

The problem is:
when a user update the password, the. htpasswd file is not updated!
To access the protected folder you have to use the old password.

I use Debian 6, with virtualmin. PHP 5.3.3

Thanks
