    Is there a way to have a web interface login for cpanel like hotmail.com front page instead of the dialog box that displays the users name and password.

    Is there some way to pass on the users name and password to the cpanel (actually .htaccess) users name and password box.


    Thanks for all your help.

    NOT SECURE.

    Is there a more secure way, it shows the users name and password which I don't want it too.

    Password in particular, its a bad idea to do it.

    Whether you use SSL or not, its still going to cache your username and password.. its not secure either way.

    Even when you use the normal login, the password is cached, phpinfo for example shows the password in clear text as REMOTE_PASSWORD

    It was my understanding that by using the .htacces method, which is the normal way, once the Browser or all open Browser windows have been closed, the ID & PW are not saved in Browser History -- as they are by any other means of access.

    So once closed and upon restarting the Browser, although the URL is retained in Browser History the ID & PW are not -- which they probably would be using any other means of access, other then .htaccess.

    This problem and what is described above, also apply to both Web based Email programs and is something to be mentioned to all Clients.

    Other than using .htaccess, there really is no other safe method for accessing the CP. If, for whatever reason, one wants to by-pass that safeguard, then install a 3rd party File Mgr. script and be done with it.

    By-passing the CP altogether is much safer than trying to by-pass the safeguards used, for accessing the CP.

    I want to do this too...I had hoped to be able to reboot my servers from my cell phone, but the .htaccess method kills my phone browser...

    sure create a script that passes:

    http://$user:$pass@domain.com:2082
