Password Protected Directories
Learn how to set up a protected and user-only area in your site with password-protected directories.
A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or just one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
