Just started with gpEasy and want to change to it, but my members must have a protected area for executive email addresses and newsletters, etc. Is there any way to use htaccess with gpEasy?

Well yes there is, just install gpEasy twice, once for non members and in another folder for members which will use htaccess. That would work but why install twice. I guess a plugin might be able to do this  because currently I'm using WolfCMS and it has this ability to password protect pages. I now prefer gpEasy and that's why I'm asking. Thanks for a great CMS!

If you did use .htaccess, be sure to prevent any access to the /data directory. Page data is stored within this directory and you'd want to ensure access is restricted to those files.

Hi Josh

  How is the data directory protected in any normal installation of gpEasy?

Most of the information is stored within php files (notable exception being any uploaded files) which when they are accessed directly return a "Not an entry point..." message to the user. User data, including sessions, is stored in arrays (instead of plain text) within these files. Additionally, passwords are md5 hashed.

All said and done, gpEasy is a very safe system. But if you're very concerned about the data you're going to be posting, adding .htaccess permissions to the /data folder wouldn't be a bad idea, especially if you're already familiar with the process.

Hi Josh

   I was planning to double install like I mentioned. I will install the public site in let's say just for example, "mysite" folder. I will then install again the whole application into "mysite/members/" folder and this "members" folder will be htaccess protected including all sub-folder of it, including the /data folder. Does this sound ok.

That sounds like a very good option.
