Global password
« on: January 18, 2012, 10:03:48 am »

Hi,

I have a coppermine installation which is only for certain people (my family).
I do not want to give them all an individual user.

In a previous installation I have solved this via a htaccess.
But this is not possible as this would block the flash-based uploader.

Is there a way to protect the whole site via a global password?

Thank you
Tobi

Without code modification the only solution would be to create one user which will be used by all people and require authentication to view the gallery. This is not recommended, so I suggest to use another upload method (simple upload, FTP + batch-add, JUpload plugin) and keep your .htaccess file.

Hello Andre,

thank you.
The solution with one user for all visitior is something I have tried.
But it does not work when different people want to use the user/password at the same time.

I will try using JUpload.
(The last time I used it (ca. 2years ago) it was quite instable...)

Thank you

AFAIK it should be possible to use the same user/password by different people at the same time. But maybe I'm wrong.

You are right.
I tried it from different ips and it worked.
Yesterday is was trying it with different machines in the same LAN which did not worked.

Thank you!
