Using the Password protected areas service, you can protect your directories against unauthorized access. When a visitor tries to open a protected directory (or a file located inside that directory), a dialogue window will pop up and request his username and password.

To protect a directory, follow these simple steps:
Fill in the Username, Password and Retype password fields.
In the Path field fill in the full path to the directory (for example: /www/ or use the [...] button to locate it. Once located, check the box in front of it and click the Set this button.
When the path is set, just click the Add protected area button.
Once a directory has been secured, you can always edit its password or remove it from the protected directories list.

* The password protection will not work if there is an .htaccess files in the folder which you are trying to protect.
