I recently discovered that my magmi ui in magento is not secured. I found instructions on securing it but I need to ensure that my scripts can still access it when I secure it. Can anyone help me with this?
Htaccess security only prevents directory-level access to external requests via Apache. In that case, it is still possible to read/write to the directory from other scripts.
A good example of this from Magento is that the
var directory has a standalone .htaccess:
$ cat var/.htaccess Order deny,allow Deny from all
The directory can be written to from the application, but cannot be read, indexed or otherwise traversed via the web interface.
