Password protect the Dashboard

Protect the admin dashboard with a password.


Agreed! This is a must! :slight_smile:

I was able to add a password following these instructions -

Just keep in mind that when we update, lighttpd.conf gets overwritten (Sorry!) So make sure you have a backup of those changes. We're working on making that more seamless.

Thanks for the heads up - sudo cp lighttpd.conf lighttpd.conf.bak

We had an interesting pull request that should help with it, we just need to fully explore it first!

Password would be nice but you could always use this in the lighttpd.conf.

# restrict access to server-status to listed IP hosts
$HTTP["remoteip"] !~ "|" {
    $HTTP["url"] =~ "^/admin/" {
      url.access-deny = ( "" )

# If the URL starts with /admin, it is the Web interface
