  • htaccess protection?

    I used this for 2.3.0

    How do you set up .htaccess to use forum passwords from a vb 3 DB

    sorry if this is a redundant thread

    It isn't smart to use the same password for the forum as well as the apache protection. It will become obsolete. I also do not think it is possible because vb3 uses a unique salt per user.

      Why not just use the forum password option in vB3? There's no need to use htaccess.

        sorry if my first post lacked details. I'm referring to non-vb pages

          For non-vB pages just include the "includes/global.php" file to use the existing user permissions with the non-vB page.

            so if I use an include to grab the global file,people visiting a non vb page will be prompted to login? (assuming I dissallow guest vewing)

            I guess that will work for now,it's still not as flexible as the original script for 2.x.x That one allowed me to specify usergroups,pretty handy.
