folder access protection not working

10 years 3 months ago #96798 by mcooper03
The folder was there when I created the plan, linked to the plan with an absolute path and when I imported the user. A .htpasswd was created by cbsubs, but no .htaccess

This still doesn't work with new plans I have set up. How is it fixed? If you're saying I have to wait for the next version for a real fix then I need a refund.

I'm still having trouble with folder access. It may be a problem with how Joomla is set up on my server but I'm not sure and don't know how to fix it. The plugin seems to work. It creates a htaccess and htpassd file. The htpassd file has the user and encrypted pass of the users who have subscribed to the plan and logged in. However, with the htaccess file there I get a Joomla generated 404 components not found screen whenever any of the files in the protected folder are accessed. This should give the message listed in the htaccess file requesting that the user log in, but it doesn't. It's like Joomla has taken over the function and I don't know how to make the password prompt come up. Please help Beat! You're my only hope.

We've tested it in multiple scenarios and it's functioning as expected. It's possible upper level htaccess files are affecting yours. Have you tried a different folder?

When creating your protection have you set it to use Joomla path or absolute path? If inside the Joomla root then use Joomla path. If outside of your Joomla root then use absolute.

If a joomla component trys to access a protected folder then it will give a 404 error. htaccess protects a folder entirely, even from server side scripts such as a components php file trying to include or direct to a protected component.

If you're using it in that manner then the folder access plugin is being used incorrectly. That's not its intended purpose. Protect the component with the content plugin (has an extensions tab on integrations tab for your plan) or by URL part.
