    I noticed something strange after installation of osCommerce. As you know only way to prevent acess to Administrtion tools is through .htacess file. So I password protected /admin directory, but then I noticed once per day that protection from directory is removed.

    I was looking why is that happening for a days and I finally find out that exactly in 4:00 AM , when crontab initiates webalizer script for processing log files, paswword protection from directory is removed...?

    Why is this happening..?

    Finally, I removed from crontab commands that generates statistics for webalizer, and now my .htacess file is not cleared anymore, but then again now I do not have webalizer statistics anymore.

    Is the .htaccess or .htpasswd file changed by the webalizer script? Does osCommerce use the stats directory?
