HTPASSWD Security Layer

The iSchool has instituted two-step authentication to its secure cms applications (both the GSS Syllabi Self-Service and the Faculty Pages applications).

HTPASSWD login

The HTPASSWD login request is similar to the restricted readings credential. The HTPASSWD login changes each semester and is sent to you by the web technologist.

Navigate to the cms application -- GSS (syllabi) or Faculty Pages.

An "Authentication Required" pop-up window will appear. Use the current semester's HTPASSWD login for this pop-up. Please contact the web technologist if you do not have the current semester's HTPASSWD login.

CMS login

To access the application you require (GSS - Syllabi Self Service or Faculty Pages), use your personal iSchool userid and login. If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it on this page. If you have forgotten your userid, please contact the iSchool's web technologist.

Important Notice #1: If you use a bad password 3 times, the account is automatically blocked and the "request new password link" is disabled. So, if you get "invalid data" error message, the time to use the reset is right after that bad input. Clicking the button repeatedly will block the account.

Important Notice #2: University policy requires passwords to expire after 180 days. When you set a permanent password, make a calendar entry to reset it before 180 days have passed.
