Motion - Support Question 2009x 10x 12x 225019

mjprox, deny access to cgi-bin?

Question

I'm using motion and mjprox to serve the streams over port 80. It works well. I've password protected the directory, which is fine, except, they could still go to /cgi-bin/nph-mjprox etc and see the stream.

How can I limit access to the script only via the specified folder?

Paste in your error messages, config settings, terminal window output etc in this text field.

Environment

Motion version: 3.2.11.1
ffmpeg version:  
Libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: Ubuntu 9.04

Answer

You have to protect your cgi-bin directory , i.ex using .htaccess .

/usr/lib/cgi-bin/.htaccess
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Password Required"
AuthUserFile /usr/lib/cgi-bin/.htpass 
Require user

Note : you have to allow .htaccess in your cgi-bin directory , take a look to apache config and change AllowOverride to ALL :
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
    <Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
        AllowOverride All
        Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
</Directory>
