Still talking about Policyd. When you access policyd webui, it’s not asking username and password. So, everyone can access policyd configuration via webui. To protect policyd webui, we can use three ways. First, we can stopping Apache service Zimbra with zmapachectl stop. Second, we can use firewall to protect and third, we can use login username and password with htaccess. From three options available, i am recommended to using third option. This is how to protect policyd webui using username and password with htaccess.
cd /opt/zimbra/cbpolicyd/share/webui/ vi .htaccess
fill with the following lines
AuthUserFile /opt/zimbra/cbpolicyd/share/webui/.htpasswd AuthGroupFile /dev/null AuthName "User and Password" AuthType Basic <LIMIT GET> require valid-user </LIMIT>
create htpasswd file, username and password
touch .htpasswd /opt/zimbra/httpd/bin/htpasswd -cb .htpasswd USERNAME PASSWORD
change username and password with username/password do you want. Edit httpd.conf Apache Zimbra
add the following configuration at the bottom
Alias /webui /opt/zimbra/cbpolicyd/share/webui/ <Directory /opt/zimbra/cbpolicyd/share/webui/> # Comment out the following 3 lines to make web ui accessible from anywhere AllowOverride AuthConfig Order Deny,Allow Allow from all </Directory>
Restart Apache Zimbra service
su - zimbra -c "zmapachectl restart"
please try to access policyd webui via browser. it would asking username and password like the following picture
Good luck and hopefully useful 😀
