This will happen if you don't have an access table. I should probably 
inhibit that behavior these days.

A good idea, anyway, is to put this in Apache:

<LocationMatch  "/cgi-bin/*/admin/*">
    AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/passwd
    AuthGroupFile /etc/httpd/conf/group
    AuthName ICadmin
    AuthType Basic
    <Limit GET POST>
	    require valid-user
