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!

Just to ask, this is another layer of security beside .htaccess? So we could set two additional passwords, one with your mod and one with .htaccess?

I have not tried that yet, not sure how it would work. Perhaps you can try it out and let us know.

Yeah that is not from this mod, I have noticed it occasionally, but have not been able to track it down, as it appears sporadically.

Worked good on a 4.2.0 test system by itself

but when combining with the regular apache .htaccess file
it got hung in a loop when entering a bad password

The Apache error log kept logging this repeatedly:

authentication failure for ".../admincp/options.php": Password Mismatch,
referer: http://.../admincp/options.php?do=dooption

Yeah I kinda figured it would not work with regular htaccess. Thanks for testing it out.
