htpasswd only for upload section

#1 Postby alfiere » Jan 25, 2010 2:41 pm

Dear all,

I have been trying to set up a password ONLY for the upload part, htpasswd and/or LDAP based.

What I achieve is a password request for the upload part AND the download link too...

Seems to be that index.cgi is called from the upload screen and the download link too :(

Any tips?

Cheers,
Alf

You need to set up password authorization for dl.cgi only.

Hi PilgrimX182,
thanks for the answer, but I'm encountering some strange behaviors.


If I set a password on upload_status.cgi
<LocationMatch "/cgi-bin/upload_status.cgi">
when the password is asked, if you click on 'Cancel' the file will be upload.

If I set a password upload.cgi
<LocationMatch "/cgi-bin/upload.cgi">
For the first time/session, I don't have back the script progress bar. The password request has delayed a lot and I receive directly the 'download URL'.

Still need an help :)

Thanks,
Alf

That is all correct :)
Apache won't return anything to browser till full upload stream finished pushing to server. That's why delay happens.
Seems you need to secure upload form page.

No way, if I protect upload_form.html nothing happens.

But If I directly call the url: http://site.com/cgi-bin/Templates/upload_form.html I'm asked for the passwd.
