Backend Protection issue was created by chrishall57
Hi, I use backend protection on all my websites but for one website it's not working.

Going to the website with /administrator doesn't get redirected.

In .htaccess I have:
## Begin Securitycheck Pro Hide Backend UrlRewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ! mysite.com/administrator/ RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !hiddenstring$RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !com_securitycheckprocontrolcenter [NC]RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !templates/administrator [NC]RewriteRule ^.*administrator/? / [R,L]## End Securitycheck Pro Hide Backend Url

Any ideas?

Hi Chris,

Does this site populate the referer? If the site doesn't send that header, the backend protection will not work.

Regards,
Jose

Morning Jose!

Not sure what 'does the site populate the referrer' means?

If I go to mysite.com/administrator then I end up at the login page for Admin

Hi Chris!

Open the inspector tools of your browser and there go to 'network' (or something like that). There you should find the referer. If not, the site (or the server configuration) is not populating it and this feature will not work.

Jose

It seems to be there, info under network is the same as sights where the backend protection is working.

What can I check next?
