This procedure requires that your account has telnet access activated on it. If you would like to have telnet activated on your account, please click here. Once you have received confirmation of telnet being enabled on your account, please proceed as listed below.
 
You must create a file called ".htaccess" in the directory which you plan to password protect. In this file write (if a .htaccess file already exists, then just add the following to the file):

AuthName "Restricted"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /usr[X]/home/[username]/public_html/
[sub-directory]/.users
require valid-user


Please replace 'X' with your actual number. You can find this out by looking at the window in your FTP or telnet (in telnet run PWD command) to see where your site resides. Also, please replace '[username]' with your actual username.
When logged on to telnet, cd to the directory that is to be protected and run:

Warning: Using htpasswd -c will initialize your access file.

htpasswd -c .users [user to add]

You will then be prompted to provide a password for the user (this prompt will appear twice).
To add additional users to your access file:

cd to the directory that is to be protected ...

Warning: Using htpasswd -c will initialize your access file.


htpasswd .users [user to add]

You will then be prompted to provide a password for the new user (this prompt will appear twice).
If you are not sure how to do this, or if you do not know how to use telnet, please feel free to contact us and we will be glad to assist you.
