protecting directory with apache


Recommended Posts

OK, first put this in .htaccess of the dir you want to protect:

AuthUserFile /home/[your user name here]/.htpasswd

AuthGroupFile /dev/null

AuthName "Descriptive name of the protected area"

AuthType Basic

<Limit GET POST>

require user joe

require user pete


In the above you need to change AuthUserFile, AuthName, and change the words "joe"/"pete" etc. to usernames that you want to allow.


Next, run the command "/usr/sbin/htpasswd -c ~/.htpasswd [user name]" to set the password for each user.


I think that that's it!
