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 (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/Tobias+Renger/extension/1756/no-flash-uploader).
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 </FilesMatch>
Does anyone know of the hand that specifies Flash Uploader targets? I would like to defeat this problem once and for all!
