I am trying to make sure I understand how WAM works. I have a website built with VSD and one of the pages links to a the store built in SCC.

My website uploads to "public_html"
My SCC files for the store upload to "public_html/store"

I have built another store and have named it 'wholesale'. I will use the server settings "public_html/wholesale" It also will have a link from the website to this wholesale store.


Will this work in WAM using VSD

How do I password protect the wholesale store completely. Do I protect the folder "wholesale.scc"

Thanks for your help!

Try bottom category tab in my website below, and follow my instructions as though you are a trade client wishing to have trade access.

When you use the form let me know your from CC

If its before i go away , SOON, i will give you requested password for WAM, i think this is exactly what your after.

Viv, Well, the password you sent me worked just fine on your site however the fact that I can access your site doesn't answer my questions above.

Anyone able to answer my questions above?

thanks for your help,

Yes, just password protect the folder public_html/wholesale and they should have to enter a password when going to that page. :D

Thanks! I assume then that all the pages in the 'public_html/wholesale' folder will be password protected. Is this right?

Any problems with VSD and doing it this way?

Once again my post is disappearing... *looks around for suspicious looking forum admins or even more suspicious looking rogue forum code* :P

The link above may help you Prairie. It may not too, but if you can't get it working I would suggest opening a support ticket and have the CC team give you a hand without if the files need editing.

I thought that would clear up the fact that everyone has access to main site but are instantly blocked from trade only pages, and that was from a VSD link, to a SCCP page.

Just try the free trial and honest if i got it working anyone can., and it will block you again automatically later in the month
