Passwords for directories?


I have a directory/folder that holds some stuff that I don’t want the public to have access to, so I’d like to protect it with a password. I can’t figure out where on Dreamhosts control panel I can set that up though, I’ve done so before on other hosts but I find this control panel confusing and complicated and poorly organized.


Actually, I love the DreamHost web panel, but I understand it takes some getting used to and it can be difficult finding your way around at first.

If you want to used apache authentication on a directory and want to do it from the panel, you can do so here:

Note that you only need to be concerned with the password protection - so don’t mess with the webdav unless you mean to also implement that! :wink:
