Another mod brought to you by,


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

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

You can edit the options under the settings, [OzzModz] ACP 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 ACP.

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 ACP, 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 admincp/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!

It would be possible, even without an extra login like this nice, awesome mod (*hint hint*).
Have seen this in an old CMS where Administrators had 2 passwords, one for the frontend and one for backend.
So theory is, to add another password field in the db (can be NULL or '' or something for non-admins) and change the login-function to check if user wants to login to ModCP/AdminCP, if yes use the second password field for authentication.
This password could be changed in the UserCP (only displayed for Mods/Admins).

Thanks.

Maybe I wasn't clear in my explanation.

You need to create new usergroup. This usergroup should have admin privileges set to yes, i.e. like you made new type of admins.

After that, when you promote someone into this usergroup, give it only access to certain areas of ACP. Some areas goes by default, but many don't.

I didn't meant to suggest that you edit permissions already allowed to supermoderators. Also, there's permission for making certain usergroup supermoderator usergroup. In same group of permissions you make admin's usergroup. Actually, in that group of permissions there are only these two options.

Then it is not from this mod, you must have some other authentication going on.

But you can check the setting table, the settings, ozzmodz_secure_acp_username
and ozzmodz_secure_acp_password

Well yeah, the two // means that line is commented out, thus not disabling your mods.

This was working great (thanks!) until last week when we migrated to a new server. Now it won't accept the login credentials. I did the define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true); and disabled it, the settings are still intact (admin & pword). Any idea?

I don't know. What are the differences between the old and new server?
