ok right so today i thought id do a exact copy of our dev site running along side the other so people can still play with it, i made a new db user and password i directed the config to it, all works fine except for when i try and log in i get a incorrect password error its a exact port of the other dev site and data in db, i checked in xf db and my user etc is there, weird thing is the xmapp version works and the original dev site works, the dev2 just wont let me in and obviously i need to carry on playing with xf

Unless someone spoofs your IP and can get through. Generally it's easier just to do the .htaccess routine... you don't have to have cPanel for that... I find that joe works just fine (joe is a neat little text editor for Linux) if you have SSH access.
thanx tracy i really appreciate ya help, the .htaccess file is easy accessable so basically follow the guide brogan said?? i can check plesk again as im logged in now but plesk 12 is very different to 10 but ill check, have you got the code for your .htaccess file?? i can change the ip or do i need to generate a password somewho
ok been out all day but just got time to try it and it still dont work
i used the plesk panel to password the root and i used the ip protect in both .htacess files i get 3 attempts then im locked out as password is wrong and have to reimport the database to start again, im not sure what to try next
i meant that basically because i only get 3 password attempts, i have to reimport the master again as it didnt let me in, i though you said i was allowed to use a test xf on top of the original site xf, ill swap the licence link later but i bet it works, so is there any way i can have my test site for myself and the dev site working fully to public
