Thank you, I tried it and it works with Stanza, Chrome, Firefox, Epiphany ...

I can wait next release, but thanks.

My old sony reader does not have network access so I use calibre coupled with owncloud
and use directly calibre over USB for my reader. COP is for my iPads.

Sure.

1. Create a passwd file outside the web tree for instance
/usr/syno/apache/passwd/passwords"

2. Edit it by entering pairs of username passwd generated by using passwd generators
available on line. For instance
http://www.askapache.com/online-tool...sswd-generator

3. In the directory where you installed COPS add a file named .htaccess and paste in it
the following lines

Code:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted resources"
AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile /usr/syno/apache/passwd/passwords
Order allow,deny
Require valid-user
# Uncomment next line if you want disable passwd check on local	net
#Allow from 192.168.0
Satisfy Any
4. Try to access a file and check that .htaccess cannot be downloaded (nor your password file)

5. Do not forget to redirect the access on https


... you are done


Thanks a lot
