Password Protected Directories
Learn how to create a protected and user-only area in your site with password-protected directories.
A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
