    Hi,

    I have set up the amember trial software on my site and password protected the /amember/ folder.

    However, now I can't log in to my admin (or any) pages with my username and password - all i get is the "Authorization Required" page.

    I've tried all combinations of UN & PW even including admin/password demo/demo etc etc...

    I have access to the FTP files plus MySQL details (I can add USERS but not admin/customers etc) - is there anything I can do to find my UN & PW?

    many thanks guys:)

    FTP into /amember/ and remove the .htaccess file.
    You should not password protect the amember directory.
    Place protected content in another folder outside of amember and protect it there.
