Fotomoto needs to access your images
Fotomoto can be used to sell images in password protected galleries, but your server/application must allow our servers to access your images.
Initially, Fotomoto needs to access your images so they can be loaded in to your Fotomoto Dashboard as explained here. In order to make this possible, your site needs to allow requests from 'fotomoto.com'. Below is an example for those using Apache basic authentication. If you're using something else, you'll need to otherwise allow or "whitelist" requests from "fotomoto.com".
Next, if you're using our Auto Pickup feature to grab your large (high-resolution) images when a sale is made on your Fotomoto-enabled site, you'll need to enter the username and password for a user that has access to the directory or S3 "bucket" where your large images are stored. This is explained here.
Basic authentication example
If you're using Apache basic authentication to password-protect the image gallery on your site, the following code can be used in your .htaccess file. Important: the path specified for AuthUserFile needs to point to your .htpasswd file.
AuthName "Restricted Area" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /path/.htpasswd AuthGroupFile /dev/null Satisfy any <Limit POST GET> order deny,allow deny from all allow from *.fotomoto.com require valid-user </Limit>
