Client informed me today that if I go to

http://serverip/bandwidth/

And click on one of the months.. it shows ALL the clients on the server and how much bandwidth they are using..

I don't care about the bandwidth figures but I do care about revealing my client list to the world..

Any way to shut this down.. stop it.. protect it?

not really a option when its a server-wide alias.

Only thing you can do is comment out:

Alias /bandwidth/

in your http.conf

We make it a habit of password protecting our /bandwidth and haven't had any problem. Works great.

how do you password protect /bandwidth/ on all your hosted domains?

try changing the IP to any one of your hosted domains.

Instead of:

http://serverip/bandwidth/

try:

http://yourclientsdomain.com/bandwidth/

Its a alias within http.conf so it works with all domains listed.
