There are intermittent problems with the CCGI stuff at the moment, and there was some maintenance done earlier this morning but the problem still seems to exist..

If you keep trying you may hit on a workable server.

I think you may just have to ride this one out :?

Sorry if this sounds negative, but give in!!!

OK, now for the explanation, osCommerce relies on “.htaccess” to control access to the administration section. Other users have found that this method of securing the admin section, is, lets say less than secure on the PlusNet ccgi servers.

You could give a try, It was originally based on osCommerce. But I believe it uses different administration authentication.
