HTML Help: Password Protection
How do I password protect part of my web site?If you have a control panel for your web site that's the first place to check. You might be able to secure a directory with a couple clicks of a button and adding the user name and password you want to use for access.
If you have cPanel for your web site's control panel I can almost guarantee you can do it this way.
With cPanel, log in and scroll down to the Security section and click the Password Protect Directories icon. Select the directory you want to protect. If their are no directories within that directory you'll see the dialog for protecting the directory you selected.
If there are other directories, you can select one of them or click the directory you just clicked, only now it will be in the crumb trail.
The "crumb trail" is simply a line showing what directory you're currently in that will look something like this:
/ public_html / domainname / members / (Current Folder)
Once the Password Protect Directories dialog opens just follow the instructions, it's quite easy.
If you don't have cPanel, password protection is done through HTTP authentication, but the "how" of it varies from server to server. You'll have to check your host's help documentation or contact the tech support department for specific instructions.
