Password Protected Directories
See how to set up a secure and user-only area in your site with password-protected directories.
A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or simply one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username and also a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
