How to Password Protect CWP Login Page(s) ?
« on: August 28, 2018, 05:59:08 AM »
Hello All,

Firstly thank you so much for this beautiful panel. We are testing this Panel and found to be really very practical for our uses.
I have evaluated VestaCP / Ajenti and CWP. CWP is way better hands down !

From a security POV, is it possible to  :

1. Password Protect ( like a directory ) the Login Pages of CWP ? ( Root Login as well as User Login ). If Yes, How can we accomplish this ?

2. Once everything is up and running ( we are hosting just 2 sites per CWP install ) , Is it possible to Shutdown the CWP service to avoid any extra exposure to the system ? This is just to reduce the attack surface, is it okey to do so ? If Yes, how is it possible ?

Thank you so much for reading/replying this query.
