Password Protected Directories
Discover how to set up a protected and user-only area in your website with password-protected directories.
A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be an entire website or simply a single page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and also a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't authorized to see the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
