Password protect a folder

Has anyone found a way to password protect a folder with or without third party software?

Hi, there are several ways to achieve this. I have done it recently with a htaccess file. Do you have a Server where you can use this? I can post my configuration if you like.

In case you are using cPanel, there is a GUI way to achieve this as well. Simply browse to your File Manager, right click on the intended folder you want to protect with a password and select Password Protect. From there, you will be taken to a new window/ tab with Directory Permissions. You can set passwords and users there.

Thank you four your reply.

I don’t think I can use it because I don’t use the Apache web serviré.

It looks like a htaccess file is available from my web provider. Please post your configuration.

Thank You,

Yes, then an htaccess file is the way to go. :slight_smile:
