Re: [HOWTO]: Using HTTP Basic Authentication

Hi,

Is there a risk to use the basic authentification if the connexion to the server is made using reflector (which enable HTTPS ) ?

Regards,

Julien

Re: [HOWTO]: Using HTTP Basic Authentication

As long as the request is made over HTTPS, basic authentication should be okay.

Re: [HOWTO]: Using HTTP Basic Authentication

Hi Matt,

I had basic auth working for about a day and now the site request password again. Any thoughts? I've reset Indigo a couple times troubleshooting a plugin earlier and now it's like I'm back to square one with the auth doing digest - I recreated the file using non-lossy ASCII and saved in the folder Indigo Web Server, am I missing something else?

Thank you,
Daniel

Re: [HOWTO]: Using HTTP Basic Authentication

Hi Matt,

So weird, just started working again! But not going to complain about things sorting themselves out (I also spent a couple hours configuring it further)! Hopefully now I’m stable with startups from this point forward.

Thank you,
Daniel
