Password protect xenforo installation


Hello. I just purchased xenforo and soon i'll install it.

My question is: I can password protect all my website with .htaccess while I install and configure it? I mean... is there any problem doing that?

Sorry my bad english. Thanks.

Yes that works. There are two things that don't work though:

1) The flash uploader doesn't work behind htaccess. You can disable it here following the installation:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Attachments -> Use Flash Uploader

2) Paypal callbacks don't work behind htaccess so you can't test payments.
