.htaccess .htpasswd





solarwind
Hi, i need to use a .htaccess and .htpasswd file on this server. But to do that, the .htaccess requires you to provide the actual server path to the .htpasswd file. Lets say that both of the files are in an accounts base directory. What will the actual server path be? And does this site even support or allow .htaccess and .htpasswd files?

P.S

I dont even know if this is the right place to post this question. But I oculd not find any other.

I would appreciate any responses.

Thankyou

Correct place. Web hosting support would be ok but either is good.

First of Frihost supposrts both files. Secondly this is what you do

In the folder where you are wanting to secure enter
Code:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthUserFile "/home/USERNAME/.htpasswds/PATH/passwd"
require valid-user

replace USERNAME with your CPanel/DirectAdmin username you have.
replace PATH with the folder name from the public_html folder but dont include the public_html folder!

You cant create the passwd file yourself as the password is encryped somehow.

If your on frihost and using |Direct Admin you could just use the directory protect feature
