Htpasswd, Magento and HTTP image uploader

When I password protect a Magento site with htaccess / htpasswd it throws a Flash uploader error. I am aware of this issue when a request from Flash is rejected. I usually run a plugin that prevents the need for Flash (

I also know that the solution for making the file access password protected, which I use for Wordpress quite a lot, for the same problem. I'm not sure which php file the flash loader is loading, so I don't know which file to add:

<FilesMatch "(the-file\.php)$">
    Satisfy Any
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Deny from none


Does anyone know of the hand that specifies Flash Uploader targets? I would like to defeat this problem once and for all!

Maybe you can try using this in your .htaccess file.

<LimitExcept POST>
    require valid-user




This is my solution for auth downloader and Magento Flash.

<LocationMatch "/catalog_product_gallery/upload">
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
    Satisfy Any
