Password proctecting directories


#1

hi,

can someone help me here?

i am trying to settle a secure directory on my website, using htaccess.

i haven´t enabled webdav.

i made a test with a jpg inside and it worked. but when it comes to the folder i really want to protect it doesn´t work. it keeps giving me the message -forbidden-

DH has made it easier for us. Check DH panel --> Goodies --> Htaccess / Webdav --> Set up a new directory

If you have messed up your .htaccess file, you can try to delete it and start over.

this is what i ve done, and it´s not working.

i´ve deleted and started over, but it is still not working …

It should be quite straight forward.

After you click set up a new directory, you will see

Directory name: http://yourdomain.com/[color=#CC0000]yourdirectory[/color]
Password-protect this dir?: [color=#CC0000]Yes[/color]
User accounts for this area: [color=#CC0000]username password[/color]

what could be wrong?

no idea. as i said my test worked, not this one.

the message i receive is
Forbidden

You don’t have permission to access /audio/promo/ on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

When you tried to access the /audio/promo directory, do you see the dialog box asking for username and password?
