Password protected directories require authentication using a username
and password before files from them can be downloaded via the web.
Protect A Directory
To protect a directory click 'New Password Protected Directory'.
A list of the directories in your web site is shown. Select the
directory you wish to protect and click 'Set-up Password Protection'.
Note that you must create a directory in your web space using FTP
before you can protect it.
Click the corresponding 'Passwords' link to view a list of users
currently granted access to the directory. To add a new user to
the directory click 'Add User'. To change the password for an existing
user, click 'Change Password'. To delete a user from the directory
To remove password protection from a directory, click the corresponding
'Remove' link. You will be asked to confirm the action before protection
is removed. On confirmation of the action, protection is removed
from the directory and all user privileges revoked.
Password protection is recursive meaning that protecting a directory
also protects any directories within it. Password protection is
not available when FrontPage extensions are installed, in this case
you should use the password protection facilities included with
your FrontPage software.
