How can I protect a part of a website ?

Max @ 22:14 | Filed under: Information Technology

You have to create an .htaccess file in the directory you want to protect. Here is an example of the syntax :

AuthUserFile /home/*/*/protected/.htpasswd 
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName ByPassword
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user

Then you just have to use the htpasswd command of the Apache Web Server to create a base of users and encrypted passwords :

# htpasswd -c .htpasswd user
