    Basic Auth

    Hey

    I am seeing the following error in the logs:

    ERROR SEOChecker.Core.Helpers.Request - [Thread 14] SEOChecker: Error could not load url http://mywebsite.com/umbraco/dialogs/preview.aspx?id=1106 System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized.

    The site is behind basic authentication, is that what is causing this error? If so, is there a way around this?

    Thanks,

    Lewis

    Hi Lewis,

    Not offically supported yet but what you could try is set the following app keys in your web.config file.

    SEOCheckerConnectAsUmbracoMember (true/false) Indicates that it's a protected site SEOCheckerUmbracoMemberName (User name) SEOCheckerUmbracoMemberPassword (Password)

    Hope this helps,

    Richard

    Thanks for the info Richard.

    Just to be clear, although the app keys say UmbracoMember, are they actually referring to Umbraco Users?

    On an Umbraco user, there are Username, Login, and Password fields - so should the mapping be as follows:

    SEOCheckerUmbracoMemberName : Username (definitely not Login?)

    SEOCheckerUmbracoMemberPassword : Password

    I have tried a combination of these but no luck so far.

    Thanks, Lewis

    Hi Lewis,

    No it's Umbraco members, it should be login and password indeed. I had a customer with protected nodes and simple authentication there it worked.

    Hope this helps,

    Richard

    Hi Richard

    Thanks again, but I think we may be mixed up - I'm talking about IIS Basic Authentication on the whole website rather than using the Umbraco protected nodes feature.

    Can you confirm that SEO Checker works if the entire site is locked down under IIS Basic Authentication?

    Thanks,

    Lewis

    Hi Lewis,

    It's an unsupported feature so no guarantees yet. Make sure you use the latest version and use the credentials you ahve configured for basic authentication.

    Hope this helps,

    Richard

    Thanks,
