Sometimes part of a web site will need to be
password protected so that only certain users can access it. You can
create password protection that will block access to all users except
those with passwords that you create. It is generally not a good idea
to password protect your "www" directory, because no one will be
able to access your web site.
To create a password-protected directory, log in to your
website's control panel located at www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/plusmail.
Click "Site Manager" on the left.
- Once you have created a directory you want to
protect, select that folder in the Site Manager. If the directory is
inside another one in the /www directory (i.e., /www/images/secret),
select the directory it is located in and click "Open
Directory". If you would like to protect a file, click on the
file name inside the folder.
- Select the username and password used to enter the
directory. You can create several different username/password
combinations for the same directory if you wish.
- Click "Protect".
- To test it, type in the path name that you have
protected (e.g. http://yourdomain.com/protect/protected.html) to see
if a password window is displayed.
