Web site username and matching password


#1

Can I set it up so visitors have to put in a user name that has to match a password before anyone can enter my site? If so how to do this.


#2

You can set this up in the DreamHost panel under Goodies -> Htaccess/WebDAV
Click the domain you want to protect, then leave the directory field blank so it protects the entire domain. Then add usernames and their passwords in the access box. Or just one generic username and password if you want everybody to use the same login.
