Passwords on web directories?

Is there some way on Dreamhost to require a username and password to access a particular directory on my web site? Typically you’d have to execute a program that comes with the Apache installation to create the file to place in said directory…does Dreamhost have some way to do this via the online administration pages?

Thanks!

yes, you can do that from webpanel
https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=goodies.webdav&

just select your website URL
and create user & password
