HFS - Logout
« on: September 24, 2012, 09:31:12 PM »
I know there is a topic about the log out.
But in this topic it's said it cant be done.

I'm here to ask how the authentication works.
Is there a .htpasswd file?
Where (in wich file) happens the authentication (with ~login in the URL)?
I'm using hfs 2.3 Beta.

1 Last thing: HFS is a genius program  ;)

kind regards,

Passwords are stored in hfs.ini, encoded in some form, then stored as plaintext in memory when HFS loads.  You can access them directly through the HFS interface.

To log on, HFS uses only basic HTTP authentication (built into browsers) that only requires the username and password be sent encoded in the header of every request.
