Password protect not working?
« on: November 26, 2005, 04:47:34 AM »
Every time I try to implement the password protect feature the password window pops up at least several times, as if I entered the wrong password. Then it sends me to the page which is completely blank. I removed the password and login in config.inc just so I can use the software. I don't want to password protect the entire folder because the text sitemap for yahoo is in the data folder. But I would like to password protect the script! Otherwise everything is working fine.

Thanks,
Scott

Hello Scott,

please make sure to upgrade to the latest version of Sitemap Generator - there were changes applied to password protection in the recent releases.

Hi Scott,

which kind of problem do you experience now (Sitemap Generator v1.2.1 doesn't have popup login input dialog).

Hi,
At the bottom of the Configuration page it says: Restrict Generator Script access:
below that it says: Login:
below that it says: Password:

When I try to use the feature the pop up login keeps coming back, as if the wrong password is put in. After the third time it lets me view the page: generator/index.php as blank. I can't access it. Then I have to remove the login and password in the config.inc.php to access the  generator/index.php page. I only purchased and installed the script on 11-24-05. So I have always had the latest version.
Thanks,
Scott

Hi, I have one more problem. Now my cron job cannot access the script when the password protect is used.
I get this message:

Content-type: text/html

<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-15"
/>
<link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="pages/style.css">
</head>
<body>

What can I do?
Thank you,
Scott

Hi, actually the cron job cannot run the script when the password protection is not used either! I really need to run the script by cron job, I wonder whether everyone is having the same problem with the latest version?
Thank you,
Scott

Hello Scott,

seems like the latest changes in auth function messed up the cron job execution, sorry. Please try to download the script again :)
