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.

1. Create a passwd file outside the web tree for instance

2. Edit it by entering pairs of username passwd generated by using passwd generators
available on line. For instance

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

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
