I have a site where I want to password protect different directories using .htaccess.
I’m using the web interface under Goodies, Htaccess/WebDav.
It works for the primary user, but I want other users to be able to control this functionality.
When other users try to set up htaccess, it fails and I get an email error message complaining that the users is not the owner of the directory.
Obviously I can’t change the owner of the directory, nor would I want to.
Is there a simple solution? I don’t want to give the contributors access to the primary account, and I don’t want them to train them to edit .htaccess files manually.
It would also be nice if the contributors got a copy of the error email. That would make sense to me.
Sorry if this is a FAQ, I’ve done my best to search the Wiki and the forums. Surprised not to be able to find anyone else with this problem.
