Minor quibble. "Your /wp-admin is protected by Apache using .htaccess"

I’ve got a wordpress installation and when I log in at the command I get this useful message in the MOTD:

Your /wp-admin is protected by Apache using .htaccess credentials:
User: admin
Pass: <password>

Only, it’s not protected by .htaccess credentials. It’s protected in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf in a <DirectoryMatch ^.*/wp-admin/> directive.

All I’m saying is, there’s five minutes of my life I won’t get back puzzling over that mystery. Fix the message please?

Thanks for mentioning this. I will pass this along to the person who maintains our Wordpress image so we can update it.

Good post, I guess you may save people 3 minutes when they stumble across this looking for an answer :)

People need to post more stuff like this after they come across odd issues.

I would say though that posting it to the wordpress website or on their bugzilla would be a good thing?
