    Hi guys,

    I have been months now configuring my ispconfig 3 on CentOS 6.4 installation for PCI DSS Compliance. I have overcome almost all the issues that I was prompted with on the security shortcomings so if anyone has questions (my site scans are performed by security metrics).

    However I have one question. The /stats/ folder which is generated by ispconfig daily, the .htaccess it creates allows the username/password to be sent in cleartext. I am trying to force /stats/ to redirect to https://mydomain.com/stats BEFORE it asks for username/password.

    I can do this with the following (appended to the already generated .htaccess at the top)

    SSLOptions +StrictRequire
    SSLRequire %{HTTP_HOST} eq "mydomain.com"

    However the .htaccess is overwritten frequently I believe.

    My issue would be resolved with either of the following,
    A) I can modify the code written to .htaccess file in the ispconfig cron files, I have had a brief look but cannot actually find the script which writes them at the moment.

    B) I can disable ispconfig from creating the stats folder automatically.

    What solutions would you think suitable and any further ideas on this would be a great help!
