I am facing issue that when I am accessing a directory in magento like /media (Which is already secured by .htaccess file ) it is showing the default magento favicon even though my website's favicon is different.

E.g. Favicon displayed is magento's default where actually I want to change favicon to my website's favicon.

or Refer to Image :

I have tried to view source but no HTML source is available.

Any one suggest me how I can resolve this issue or how I can configure my favicon for this path ?

In your root install magento you have a file called : "favicon.ico" if you view this file you see a Magento logo.

Change this file with your favicon and the problem solved.

  • I have done following changes already : changed root favicon images, skin/default favicon, skin/mytheme favicon file, backend/configration favicon file but nothing positive. Commented Aug 21, 2014 at 12:53
