Another mod brought to you by,
https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2015/01/1.png

This is a small mod that will allow admins to set up htaccess login for their ModCp, without file edits, or cpanel.

It is a simple installation, just import the product XML, ozzmodz_secure_modcp

You can edit the options under the settings, [OzzModz] ModCP Authentication Settings

Once you set up the options, you can then share the username and password with all your members that are allowed to access the ModCp.

Note: If you forget the username or the password, or have a problem logging in, just add the following to the includes/config.php right below the <?php tag :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then you can assess your ACP, and make the necessary adjustments to the mods settings, then remove that line from the includes/config.php

Note: If you have never edited your includes/config.php before, please read this first, Editing Your config.php File

First screenshot is what the log in box looks like.
Second screenshot is what the settings look like.
Third screenshot is what the error message looks like if the users presses cancel.

Complete Feature List
  • Option to disable the mod completely.
  • Option to set what the login username will be.
  • Option to set what the login password will be.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Q. Why do I need this mod?

A. This just adds a extra layer of security to your ModCp, by asking for a additional username and password, in order to log in to it. Sure you can do this with file edits or in cpanel, but why bother, this makes it simple.

Q. Why did you make this mod?

A. It was something I was doing by editing the modcp/index.php file, but I would always forget to make the changes when I updated the site.

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified whenever new updates are available.

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!

Thanks for the mod Ozzy47

Now that I have your mod pass security auth + my server security auth,
I think it is great to have double security measures.

it would be also a great idea to have 2-factor authentication as well...

Edit: the mod works besides my server security, but the authentication conditionals are not accepted!!

Yeah I don't think the two will work together.

Great sounding mod. Is this ONLY for ModCp or AdminCp? Would be nice to see these options available for both:

1. Mod's username used for htaccess username
2. A log each time a mod/admin logs in wether it's a correct or incorrect password

ACP version is here, http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=312555

1) That would kinda defeat the purpose of having a different username, thus making this slightly less secure.

2) Perhaps at some point, but it is not a high priority.
