What are Protected Directories?

Set up password-protected directories for administrative areas and pages that you do not want the public to access.

If you have files that should only be accessed by certain people, you can password protect those files by placing them in a directory and setting up a user name and password. Those trying to access the protected files will be prompted to enter a user name and password.

The first entry in a protected directory overview table is the main user and cannot be edited or deleted.
