(Protected) Omeka 2.1.3 (+ Neatline)

May 9, 2014

NOTE: This version of Omeka 2.1.3 (+ Neatline) is protected with an Apache password (for the username and password see the ReadMe). Users will need to enter credentials before accessing the site. I’ve produced it following requests from people who would like to be able to build Omeka sandpits that aren’t available on the open web. Given the password is available in the ReadMe you’ll clearly only have a minimum of protection (!), but it will offer a level of security against people who happen across your sandpit by mistake. DO NOT TAKE THIS TO MEAN YOUR SITE IS SECURE – IT’S STILL JUST A TEMPORARY SANDPIT. It is, of course, possible to change the Apache password (instructions available via a Google search) to increase security, but you’ll need to SSH into your server to do so.

Please use this version if you don’t need, or want the hassle of, an Apache password-protected site.
